Meds update: so I'm now on 225 of Effexor ER, still on the 4 mg of Klonopin and added 25 mg of Lamictal which will be increased to 50 mg next week. I have to say, I am feeling amazing and my darling fiance is noticing a huge difference which is wonderful. I was feeling so guilty for bumming him out when he has been nothing but wonderful AND we have our wedding to look forward to!
Well, the Pritistiq doesn't seem to be doing the trick so the pdoc is going to be switching me to Effexor XR - practically the same drug, so we will see what happens. I just want the irritability and anxiety to go away already! I'm additionally on 4mg of Klonopin, so the fact that I'm still on edge 98% of the time is not a good thing.
I just started on Pristiq this morning and I know that I will have to wait a few weeks to start to feel the effects, but just wondering what other people's experiences have been. I take the Pristiq in the AM, Klonopin (1mg/3 times a day), Synthroid for thyroid issues and Ambien to help me sleep.
I'm starting to feel like I need one of those days of the week pill tracker things just to keep it all straight! Just wondering if anyone had any insight.
