I'm hanging in there- one more Christmas party today- and it's the biggest one- will be so relieved when it's over. Was under the weather yesterday but otherwise have been functioning. Had a death in my husbands family so after Christmas was busy. Haven't had a rest yet.
January starts the slow season at my work so I just have to make it a few more days and I can relax.
Am reading an interesting book about food and depression and I'll be testing it out and let you know if it helps. Haven't been eating all that healthy and the holidays are the worst for me...to many sweets!
LBOZ- How did your doctor appt. go? Did you get new meds.? I've been sick with the stomach flu. I think I'm going to try to cut back on the viibryd again. I don't like having to take something to help sleep all the time. I've been taking it early in the day. I would like to try the 20mg again, if sideeffects to bad might just have to stick with the 40mg.
I haven't been feeling so well myself..kinda flu-y...
I'm starting Cymbalta now. Stopped the Saphris. It's supposed to help with pain too which is a daily issue for me...
Have a feeling the cymbalta may cause similar sleep issues to the viibryd. But I've also read that it gets better over time. We shall see.
Hope you feel better soon!
LBOZ- Checking in to see how you're doing on the cymbalta. My niece takes that med. . She said, first it had a lot of side effects. But she worked through them and it helps with the pain. She started taking it at night and then moved to take it of the morning. I think she's taking 60mg.
I'm still taking the viibryd. I take it early in the day now.
Saw new p doc. She doesn't want me to take the xanax. Has started me on an unconventional treatment with a low dose of Nardil, because I have such weird reactions to the other psych meds and I've never been on an MAO inhibitor. She thinks I might have to take a low dose of that and something else maybe, we will see how it goes. The pharmacy had to order it, so I won't get it until later today. Have been really sick all week- have not been working...hoping for some relief soon.
How have you been doing?
LBOZ- I'm hanging in there. I'm trying the 30mg of viibryd again. I notice I have more leg cramps. Next week going to try the 20mg viibryd and stay there. How did you like your new doctor ? Let me know how the new med. goes. Hope you get to feeling better.
The Nardil is an antidepressant- I feel about the same so far on 30 mgs. Maybe slightly better. Sleep interrupted but I get back to sleep.The doctor plans to add something else, but I'm not sure when. I see her on Friday.
LBOZ- Checking in to see how You're doing. Did your doctor add something esle to your med. ? I'm on the 20 mg of the viibryd. Still have leg cramps. I hope it'll get better in time. I do sleep a lot better on the 20mg. .
