Lithium = Bad

Well, that lasted less than 23 hours.  I thought I was all hyper and agitated at work yesterday because of the general craziness that was going on.  I took my night dose and about a half hour later was almost crawling the walls.  I was washing windows at 10 pm.  Good thing I’m part time now so I didn’t have to be at work at 9:30.  Silly me took another dose in the am without thinking.  In Korea, they just pack up things in daily packets.  So I get three packets a day for my crazy meds.  By the time I got to the doctor’s office, I was just about going to go ballistic.  I was on the verge of a panic attack.  After explaining what happened he agreed the Lithium was the wrong choice.  He was going to add Effexor until I told him it made me nauseated 24/7 the last time I took it.  Then he wanted to add Prozac.  When I explained that I didn’t sleep on Prozac for nearly two weeks and ended up in the hospital, he also decided that was a bad idea.  In the end, the bumped up the dosage of the Lexapro.  We’ll see how that goes.

Crazy Meds!!!!
