> Girl we are simpatico!
> I am currently suffering through a really bad bout of PMS waiting for my period to start. Some months are so much worse than others! This is a worse one. Also coinciding with the full moon, so who knows? As a matter of fact I haven't felt this freaky for a long time, every once in a while...don't know why.
> It sounds like you are really suffering, maybe you should stop? I just know how bad it can be because I have been there. I used to just ride out all the SE's because everyone said they would eventually go away. Finally, after many trials of several AD's I kind of learned from experience that hey this isn't gonna work for me and I ain't gonna keep on freaking out just to keep freaking out some more. It really depended on what the SE's were. If I was in constant paranoia, anxiety and rage well then this might not be a good thing...
> Are you currently on any MS at all? I actually tried Prozac again recently and tolerated it much better than when I had taken it alone. Still in the end it was too intense for me, but it wasn't half as bad as when I had taken it alone. Too bad too, my depression was getting better on it to a degree. I can't take AD's without some sort of MS or I totally wig out.
> Hmmm, the tegretol. I started taking it soo many years ago. All I can remember is that it made me extremely depressed when I first started taking it. More so than usual. But once I found the right dosing schedule it finally started to help.
> For the most part my anxiety and anger went way down. I have no idea what is going on today cause nothing is working!
> Have you gotten a hold of your doc yet?
> Beth = )
> Sleep? I want to sleep all the time!! I guess that is where we are different. I am sure the tegretol and neurontin and zoloft and blah all make me crash out. I very rarely have trouble sleeping unless I add, subtract or change my meds.

Hi Beth,

Thanks for your response. My pdoc still hasn't called me but I have an appointment with him on Friday. I really want to get off this stuff....I hate it. Anxiety is high, sleep is poor, and I feel too "spacey". I am not on a MS at the present. The last one we tried was Depakote sprinkles, which made me terribly depressed, although it did kill the anxiety. I couldn't lower the dose anymore since I was on the lowest dose possible.

This is so frustrating. If I could get a decent night's sleep, I could deal with all of this. I am working full-time, have three small kids, and I feel constantly stressed. Sorry for babbling, I am just having a lousy day and I want to go home and feel better.

How do you compare the Tegretol to other(if any) MS's that you have tried? I haven't tried Tegretol am hesitant of starting another MS since I have struck out with three already. When I am very agitated and anxoius and can't sleep, I will take 7.5 mg of zyprexa. This knocks me out but I pay for it the next day. Horrible hangover.

Hope you are well today and hope I will be well tomorrow.
