That's a good question. See, I am not really sure. I have not been able to get stabilized for over a year. It all started when I switched to Kaiser and the doctor there reduced my Medications although I was stable, I don't even recall exactly what I was taking and when. I have been trying to get back to that stable feeling all year. Kaiser really messed me up. After seeing him about 3 times, I started to go back to my old doctor and now pay out of pocket. Anyways, I just can't seem to get stable on anything. When I made the switch I went without my medication for about 2 weeks because Kaiser wouldn't authorize and it was all just so crazy. Weight gain is something I don't want, so I try to be careful there as well. In the past year alone, I have retried
Zoloft- made me very aggitated.
Lamictal- Angry and itcy
Geodon- Spaced out , bloated
Cymbalta-on and off three times

I am a systems analyst and work 50+ hours per week and I have been at my job 7 1/2 years. I am so close to losing it. I unfortunately cannot reduce my hours. The Kaiser doctor actually told me "he was running out of options" the last time I saw him. I left feeling like, OK does that mean I should slit the wrists? I am not workable? I can't keep living live this anymore.
