We are watching my mild depression against the possibility of it worsening. If it gets worse, then I may end up trying out other anti-depressants.

My meds are pretty much the same as before, the only other difference being that I've started taking Benedryl OTC as a sleep prn (I've had it prescribed in the same dosage as a sleep aid before so I know its okay)

I'm on Abilify 15mg.

I bounce my leg half the time, like I'm jones'n for a smoke or something! I hate it, but the therapist says I should have a different perspective that it makes me feel better, and that's a good thing.

well... :/

I went down in medication from 6mg Risperdal to 5mg at night because I was starting to drool and experience occational muscle twitches. It was getting worse rather than better so we dropped a little and the rest of my meds stayed the same. No more drooling. So I am relieved. I was worried what they were going to say at the school that I volunteer at if it continued past the summer.

So my other medications are:
Wellbutrin 300mg (antidepressant)
Lexapro 20 mg (antidepressant, anti-anxiety)
Prilosec 40mg (stomach med)
Albeuterol (rescue inhaler [&before exercise inhaler])
Flovent (steroid inhaler for asthma)

Each problem carries with it the seeds of its own solution. If you don't have any problems you don't get any seeds.

I went to the doctor the other day and he switched me to Tegretol (carbamazepine)-100mg at bedtime. I don't have time to eat after I take them!! It kicks my butt!!! LOL And I've been sleeping from 10:30 pm to around noon. UGH!!! But, I'm not eating....LOL. Hopefully, I'll get used to it soon!!

Maybe have fresh veggies handy to snack on at night? I used to buy veggie trays, and they're good with the ranch-style dip. Or maybe a lower-calorie dip would be good, like honey mustard. I used to buy veggie trays when I took Zyprexa, because it gave me that trouble. Now I take Abilify, and have that trouble less often.
