thanks
I have BPII, anxiety....really bad sleep problems,....apnea...and chronic fatigue syndrome.
I am extremely med sensative....I am on tiny amounts of drugs....
less than 5mg of buspar
5mg lexapro
a smidg of elavil....it helps with the sleep but started pooping out and makes me gain weight...
I was on 100 mgs of topamax and felt great.....but activated.....was only getting 3-5 hours of sleep a nite...and broken sleep at that...which is insane for me with the chronic fatigue...yet I didn't feel that bad.
So yesterday ...we lowered the topamax to 50 and I took a little bit of tamazepam to help me to sleep....I slept 8 hours....I couldnt believe it.
I went to my P doc today...and she was like..."well you want to sleep and you dont want to gain weight...so that doesn't leave me many choices" Are those unreasonable requests????? She wanted to put me on lithium but I am reluctant cause of the weight gain....I'm gonna try adding OMega 3's to the topamax and see how that does...
She also upped my AD
This med stuff is such a bummer.
thanks for your help
