Dexamized, Undersized

I impulsively stopped taking Dex for a few days. Was wondering wether I could do without it. My wife has noticed me grinding my teeth in my sleep a couple of times. That may be due to the dex.

Well, I've become sick. Throat virus. Not dex related I'm sure!

Day two without dex, melancholia began to strike. Also, chaos seemed to be back with a vengeance. Libido flew out of the window.

Yesterday I took a mini-dose of 1.25mg in the morning and another 1.25mg in the afternoon. I felt better. Chaos lifted. Felt enthusiasm coming back. Libido returned.

Maybe I could get by on supersmall maintenance doses, and then take more for the better type of chore busting.

I talked to my p-doc last week, telephonic consultation, and told him how dex was at first a disappointment, with the anti-social effects (and the extra anxiety). P-doc said that dex can have a flattening effect indeed. It was good to hear it's not that exotic. Luckily, those effects faded after a few weeks.

Today, I had to survive my wife's birthday party, so I took 7.5mg of dex in total, with 10mg of oxazepam. Right after popping the first dex, my wife asked me to deconstruct a computer desk, which involved pulling and moving lots of cables. I then realized that dex only helps me with situations that are somehow familiar and ordered. Cables represent primeval chaos snakes to me. That's why I popped the ox. And then more dex to counter the sedation. Right. Uhuh. Take downers with your uppers and uppers with your downers.. I think increased anxiety and irritability in unfamiliar, stressful situations are just the price for increased drive and focus in 'cool' situations.

I hope to be at work again tomorrow. On dex, I think. Maybe just a little. S, instead of XL.

Current meds: clomipramine 225mg, fluvoxamine (Luvox) 50mg, dexamphetamine 5-10mg, bethanechol 20-60mg. As needed/wanted: oxazepam 5-20mg.
