Sorry Ann, I don't have any answers, but I can relate. Right now, I'm on Zoloft, Wellbutrin, Xanax, Klonopin, Lithium, Haldol, and Sonata. For non-psych meds, I'm on Prilosec and doxycycline. I feel like I'm swallowing pills every hour of the day! But actually, I don't feel overmedicated in a way that I have before. Despite the number of meds, I feel pretty normal. Last spring, I definitely felt overmedicated, and I was. I was on high dose lithium, risperdal, effexor, plus klonopin and trazodone. I couldn't think to save my life, and I was a zombie for months. Those months are completely lost for me; I don't remember anything from them. I don't think it's the number of medications you're on as much as it is the effect the meds have on you, which is sometimes correlated with dosage. Anyway, you're not the only one taking pills all the time! Hope that makes you feel somewhat better...
