Aricept [Donepezil] Day 1

Posted by Mishal on July 3, 2008, at 1:41:10

Pharmacist had a chuckle soon after I asked for Dopezil 5mg (Indian brand of Donepezil made by Ranbaxy)

"For whom sir?"

"For myself"

The guy looks again in disbelief. "I never sold this to...."

Anyway, escaping the scene I got back to my apartment. Twenty white tablets. I took my dinner early to swallow one of them. Half of that Ativan 2mg too. It is a precaution. If I ever get manic or hypomanic..? Ativan can answer.

I went to bed earlier but things started to improve.. I mean really improve. For the first time in many months, I felt like going out for a movie or doing something at retiring hours. There was a pile of magazines left untouched. I started on them.
Clock ticks
..00 13 14 15...

Gee.. I am not thinking of sleeping at all. Everything seems different to me. Razor-sharp focus.. Want to do something late at night when the whole New Delhi is sleeping..!
I went to bed by 3am. No weird dreams as someone mentioned on this board. There were dreams for sure, but I don't remember them anymore. Great..

It was 10:00am

It didn't surprise me as I woke up and began functional instantly. The brightest morning in a long time. I did sleep seven hours. Perhaps it(sleep) could be ativan? I don't think so. Ativan is not a new med for me. I have taken it and stayed disturbed in bed many times.

Is it too early to get buzzed? Okay.. I would keep you all updated. If "first impression is the best impression" I would say this one is way better than Trivastal or Provigil. And see it is cheap here: Less than 5 US dollars for twenty pills..! Oh.. this is India where meds are dirt cheap.

Now see my cocktail:

Prozac 60mg in the morning.
Modalert 200mg in the morning (Modalert = Provigil)
Solian (Amisulpride) 50mg at night. (It is sold as "Sulpitac" here)
Donepezil 5mg at night.
Ativan Occasionally. (I can skip days and restart again. Dosage is 2mg)

I know meds; especially Aricept is cost prohibitive in US and Europe. Do one thing: Get a prescription from your doc and order it online. The stuff you get will be from SUN pharma, the second largest generic manufacturer in India with a brand name "Donecept" (Ranbaxy doesn't provide their products online)But don't worry at all. All those meds I take are Indian generics and I haven't felt them any different to the real ones.

Please wait for my update, tomorrow at the same time.
