Fair. Had 2 nights not great sleep and feel pretty moody. Might take a full pill for sleep tonight instead of a half. Don't have to work tomorrow so if I'm out of it in the am, not a major problem.
Still not sure about this med....either feel great or feel really edgy. Just gonna stay the course for now because I don't want to change anything until after Christmas 'cause I have a lot going on....
LBOz- How's the mood pill going? My son is only taking half of the pill, the one you take for sleeping. Have you thought about giving viibryd another try ? I know it's hard trying to find the right med . . I'm working the next three days.
I have to wait till after Christmas to change anything...I'm hanging by a thread as it is. Seriously considering a change of Doctor too.
The mood pill I think is ok, but I feel really unstable...probably need an antidepressant in the mix. I think finding a Doctor that is more responsive to my difficulties with medications would be a good next step.
It's strange, I think the antidepressants had me really evened out, kinda numb- no lows or highs either. I'm just kind of adjusting to all the feelings I'm having. But I feel like maybe they are more up or down than they should be.
Plus, holiday stress from families and of course working with the public...I'm having a hard time.
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.
