The first day i came home from the hospital i had been in a manic high mood for 3 days. in trying 8 different meds this was the one.
In this week i've experienced hallucinations that are not even pyschatric. Its a normal part of life called hypogonic. it is a lucid dream with images that come into peoples minds while they are in half sleep and can still hear things around them. not due to mental illness but due to sleep stage stuff. I have insomina so the past 3 weeks i had been not sleeping well. I've still had trouble. I usually am sleep by 11-1 am. I go online at night sometimes. I wake up at 8-9 am everyday and force myself to wake up. I am a mother as well. so i'm lucky my kid doesn't go to school till after 9 am.
It has curbed my promicus behavior for 3 mths now, before i took this medication i was on Effexor and that caused me to have suicidal thoughts in the 3rd week so i was given topamax and that didn't work. Suicidal facts again, then i was put on aderax/ablify and that again didn't work much, but it did curb my Promcius behavior.
I've been having aniexty and panic attacks everyday atleast 1-2 a day. I was given 25 mg of Lamictical. Now in the 3rd week i am going up to 50 mg today. I hope to reduce my aniexty and panic attacks.
