I checked out that website. and it looks like Lithium AND Depakote has these anti-aging qualities to them???? I wonder if I'm doing the right thing by coming off of Dep. I just don't like that polycyctic thing....
And I won't be coming off of it right away. Not even for four more weeks will I begin titrating downwards. I start Lamictal at 5mg and titrating up 5mg every two weeks. With the titrating schedule, I"ll be on Depa. for another 8 weeks! He's doing it very slowly. I think (I think) he's doing it b/c he wants to be safe (one) and (two) b/c he wants to see what Dep. will do for me while also appeasing me. I don't even get to 10mg of Lam. until three weeks from now! At week 8, i'll be at 50mg! I think he's being clever. He also says that depending on how I do on Depakote, he will be able to tell a lot about dxing and treatment plans to follow, regardless if we stay on Dep. I almost feel like I've taken the matter into my own hands and he's letting me in a way, but also being clever enough to experiment for awhile, possibly for my own good.
that's my take on it.
and btw, I have another crush on him!!! What's this about? I get nervous and giggly. I know this is something not about him, but transference related. But what if I geniunely have a crush on him without any transference issues? I know I know, redirect to social. if we talk anymore about it, just follow the link.
