As some of you may recall, I had a MASSIVE grand mal seizure that was witnessed. I immediately went to the hospital where they game me 1000mg of Depakote. My attending doctor was a very sharp man, and he concluded that I have temporal lobe epilepsy, not sz. He even wrote a 90 day prescription for Depakote. When was the last time you heard of an ER doc giving a 90-day supply of meds? I’ve been off antipsychotics for 7days, and haven’t felt this good since I relapsed in 2008. I saw my PCP the next day, and he put me on Sinequan (doxepin). It’s an old tricyclic antidepressant with a three-pronged approach: it helps depression, anxiety, and promotes good, natural sleep. My PCP is going to crank up the dose in the coming weeks, 50 mg at a time.
So now for the big question: Do I stay here? My answer is a resounding YES! You guys have been there for me when I was down in the dumps or going through medication after medication. I don’t want to tell you all to ■■■■ off now that I’m better. I’ve made some good friends here, and I’m not the type of person to bail on my friends.
