That was not a good idea

Hi:

This afternoon I woke up and grabbed my morning pills. I took my Effexor, Lithium, stomach med and then I realized I was out of Wellbutrin. So today was a holiday and nothing was opened so I was stuck. I did not think this was a big deal as I will go get some more pills tomorrow. I was wrong and my body is freaking, the room is spinning, i have this really weird taste in my mouth and all sorts of things are dancing on the walls. I am taking my night meds really soon and I am hoping some how its going to help. I have been on Wellbutrin for almost two years and figured there was enough in my system to get me through til tomorrow.......nope or this is something else and one heck of a coincidence. I need to stop typing now

take care

Re: That was not a good idea

You know what that just ticks me off. Why can't these "experts" create a med that is decent. I mean like you said you have been on it for two years and one pill causes this. I'm sorry it just makes me angry. And all of these meds cause all kinds of side effects. (grrrrrrr)I hope you are better today!!

Re: That was not a good idea

Hi: My night meds slowed down the spins which was good. Right now I am waiting til I am more awake to get to the hospital and pick up this months supply. I can't believe one missed pill had that much of an effect. Heck I even ate yesterday. Thanks for the responses

take care

Re: That was not a good idea

Hi:

I picked up my pills at three and took one immediately. My head feels like I spent last night drinking way too much. I am hoping tomorrow everything is back to normal or whatever normal is these days because this sucks

take care

Re: That was not a good idea

I'm glad you picked up your pills. I'm sorry you went through that.

I've been meaning to ask you... do you make up the quotes in your signature? They are always quite clever.

Re: That was not a good idea

Hi:

I am not that clever. I belong to a bunch of sites like this so when I see a quote I like I borrow it. The hard part is finding one I like plus one that will fit in the space allowed.

take care

Smile Re: That was not a good idea

I just wish that when you begin the roller coaster of mental health meds, they'd tell you how addictive they are. When I developed agorophobia 30 yrs. ago, I don't think they knew tons about it, but my current addiction is Klonopin, which I was put on to get me off Xanax and something else I can't remember. I've been on the Klonopin for over 20 yrs., and can't imagine what it will be like to get off of it. It obviously isn't effective anymore, as I can't leave the house, and I have no insurance, so can't go inpatient to detox. I've heard some real horror stories about withdrawal from long-term Klonopin use. I know they give you pamphlets with the drugs, so I guess I have some responsiblity, but my Dr. always just pooh-poohed the side effects, etc. What to do, huh? I like your quotes, too.
