Please Help...

Posted by SunniBunni on June 29, 2008, at 2:16:13

I am currently taking these meds:

Geodon - 40mg every night
Lamictal - 25mg every night
Seroquel - 200mg every night
Benzotropine - 2mg morning and night
Vistril - 50mg morning and night

It may be just me, but it seems like my doctor has me on a lot of medication. These are all to treat my bipolar disorder. Lately I've been having scary thoughts, and haven't been feeling like myself. I've felt very paranoid at night, and have lots of nightmares. Sometimes I get to the point where I'm so depressed I can't get out of the bed. My worst fear is that I'm not in control in my mind. All the medications seem to be in control. I'm on my first week of the Lamactal, and it seems like when my doctor adds another medication, it makes my Geodon out of whack. Does anyone else experience anything like this with any of the medications I listed above?

Also, I have been having some physical side effects too. Dizziness, chest pain, low blood pressure, swollen glands (lymph nodes), shortness of breath, high anxiety, and lots of panic attacks. My doctor doesn't seem to understand that I get side effects from medicines easily. I can't seem to find another doctor, considering I live in a small town, so I thought I would try this. Hopefully it may help to know that I'm not the only person having to deal with all this.

Thanks for any responses.
