With the mood swings and the hyper spikes… I talked to my therapist who agreed… and my preservation team mentioned this same idea. It’s time for a tune up and some tinkering.
My hyper-spikes have been coming on like a hit and run driver. Only once I’m up in hyper drive, it takes a few hours to get back down. But then I’m exhausted… on the nod… can barely think I’m so tired.
I am five tons of thankful that my family knows I’m dedicated to this recovery and believes me when I tell them I’m not back on drugs again.
I see my doc this week too. He’s been mentioning upping the meds for about two months now. Since Latuda has mood stabilizing properties… he didn’t want to add yet another mood stabilizer. Give the higher dose of Latuda a chance first. (tinker with the machine, not rebuild it)
Due to upping the Seroquel dose… he said it’s also time to add the Metformin. I’ll be starting that this month. If my hyper spike doesn’t stop then my doc wants to add Vyvanse.
Little sad to have this happen. I’ve worked so hard to try and cut the meds back. Oh well. It’s better then relapse and very high meds, and starting all over again.
