At the dr office


#1

My dr turned me down for Amphetamines by text today so I asked to see him ASAP and he had a cancelation. So I’m waiting in the office. Hope he has a good strategy to deal with the depression, fatigue and voices I’m hearing


#2

Good luck to you. Glad you were able to get in ASAP. :paw_prints::paw_prints::paw_prints:

Dr is taking me off lithium and putting me on depakote. I also got some Prozac. Can anyone tell me about depakote? Does it make you sleepy?

Hopefully this works better than the Amphetamines


#4

I’ve been taking Depakote for years.
It’s a very sedating drug.
But it is extremely effective so I choose to remain on it.


#5

I am on it. I take one pill 300mg in the morning and another in the evening. It doesn’t make me sleepy.


#6

Depakote didn’t make me drowsy, but it made me totally spaced out.


#7

Anyone here on Prozac? Are you happy? Does it make you sleepy?


#8

I take 60mg Prozac. Doesn’t make me sleepy at all. I don’t feel euphoric on it though. I don’t think you are supposed to. Just notice less depressive thoughts and for me less intrusive thoughts


#9

Asking someone for “amphetamines” doesn’t come across very well. I can’t say I’m surprised your doctor turned you down.


#10

I was already taking Ritalin, he thought that adderal and vyvanse were the same thing and wouldn’t work if Ritalin didn’t
