Seems like a lot of medication

It occurred to me that I am currently on six meds, seems like a lot.

Abilify Maintena (injections), Haldol, Cogentin, Paxil, Wellbutrin XL, and Lamictal. Damn.

It’s what I need to keep me sane and balanced, though.


Could be the reason why you are so high functioning.


Yeah, I’m still a pretty weird guy IRL, but I don’t think any meds can fully take away my weirdness lol.

I’ve been on psych meds the past 18 years, so many different med combinations have been tried on me.

I’m only on abilify 15mg (and metformin for high blood sugar caused by abilify). I was offered something for anxiety but checked out the side effects and decided against it.

My psychiatrist won’t give me anything decent for anxiety, not even Klonopin or Ativan. All I can get from her is either Buspar or Vistaril. What a joke, both of those meds are useless to me.

I think it’s because I’ve been honest with her about alcohol and cannabis use, though I haven’t had a drink in two years.

If it’s working for you, it’s worth it.

I had a bad pdoc who had me on highest doses of seven different meds and i was still a hot mess. I’m on four now. Six wouldn’t bother me if it worked well. Why worry about how many? Just be grateful that you do so well.
