Oh my God, do you take all of that now? Whatever doctor is prescriing that is violating the ethical cannons. Is there any empirical evidence that these meds work for somatiform disorder? Don't you think that you may over-focused on meds here? Sorry to be so blut about it.

> Let's see.. polypharmacy for a rare visual somatiform disorder. Looking at the medical card that I made to put in my wallet. Everyone should make one of these. You never know when a EMT tech or a surgeon will need it. Seriously.
>
> Ambien -- probably used to it now, but keeps me from waking early I think. 20mg.
>
> Aprazolam (Xanax) -- PRN for a "panic button" day. Helps with an extra stressful day even on top of the Valium. More immediate gratification.
>
> Biperiden (Akineton) -- preferred anticholinergic for those rare days of necessity. More than about 1.5-2mg a day and can cause subclinical atropine toxicity. At this very moment also helps dry the mouth for a salivary awareness that is part of the entire somatiform spectrum that I had wished was gone long ago.
>
> Cymbalta -- secondary depression. 90mg. Not enamoured of the electric shocks but it works for what it is worth.
>
> Diazepam (Valium) -- high dose to fight my somatiform disorder which seems to encompass GABA and D2. 170mg for now. Used to take Klonopin -- Valium provides possibly greater anxiolytic relief. Trileptal makes it necessary to dose even higher because of P450
>
> Gapapentin (Neurontin) - augments but does not work in itself, with the Diazepam. 3600mg.
>
> Methocarbamol (Robaxin) - provides mild relief for a drug induced spasmotic condition I have. Its cousin Soma would be better but doc does not want to combine with high dose Diazepam. 3375mg. Higher and it creates a P450 serotonin syndrome situation.
>
> Propranolol (Inderal) -- PRN. Provides relief for subclinical random serotonin syndrome and extreme drug induced hand shaking. Don't use it much these days. But it works -- at least 80mg at a time is required.
>
> Seroquel -- do I love it, no, do I think about the possibility in the range of 1/4% per year or who knows of TD, no I dont like that, do I not like the intense morning sedation, no -- but I need it for its D2 action. Zyprexa would be better but it causes potential permanent pseudoparkinsonism in me. 950mg. Trileptal makes it necessary to dose even higher because of P450.
>
> Trileptal -- still at a hovering position until possible liver tests for an extremely remote reason it could harm it. I dont think I'm at a clinical enough dose. So neutral. 300mg.
>
> I think that covers the exaustive list. I'm sure I probably forgot yet another one.
