More new meds

Posted , 2 users are following.

Not feeling so anious today,am getting another anti Depressant though as my psychiatrist doesnt think lithium is enough with mirtazapine to keep my mood up.I dont really care anymore what I am given so long as there are no side effects.

I am finding it very hard to get up and moving in the morning and feel sluggish all day.When I think of how i used to get up at 7 on non work days,go to the gym and then blitz the house I dont recognise myself.I worked 30 hours a week,now I can barely force myself to go out and the meds Im on are making me fat,with all my inactivity.

I just want my old self back,

    Does anyone have any experience of reboxetine,the few on other forum seem a bit wild on the side effects but this is my last hope!

    Dont know anything about reboxetine. It is another anti depressant. Hopefully you'll start feeling better soon. Pooh.

    Sorry Jo I have something more to add. In my own experience it sometimes takes months for the doctor who is looking after you to get the meds right. It was certainly the case for me. I was put onto lithium when my son was very young with resistance on my part but my condition was deteriorating and without the lithium I might not have been able to look after him. I had day hospital support I think two days a week as well. Infact the lithium has worked very well inspite of all its well documented side effects. When we are ill we are not always very insightful into our illnesses. It is only when we get better do we realise how ill we have been. My son is ten now I might add. Post soon. Pooh.

    [color=darkblue:e5e93b8cf5][/color:e5e93b8cf5]Very sorry to hear of your predicament.I have just started to take Mirtazapine and feel very very tired -could sleep all day and like you used to work hard for similar hours.I love my work and have been on sick leave for 6-7 weeks and find returning distressing and can I keep up with everyone else ! I know we need support from those close to us -I hope you can get this.Regards
