I added prazosin (Minipress) 30 mg last week as a treatment for residual PTSD, if it even exists in me. I thought it was worth a shot. Certainly, childhood abuse and neglect contributed to the evolution of my depressive illness.
I added Parnate on Monday. I am titrating as quickly as I can while avoiding the development of hypotension. The prazosin might work synergistically with Parnate to significantly reduce my blood pressure. We'll have to see. 30 mg is a small dose of prazosin. There is room to increase it.
I'm feeling better than I should be. Yesterday, I met some family and friends at a hotel bar. I was comfortable, gregarious, and talkative. My mind was very active. I really enjoyed myself for the first time in many years.
Two things are different about my current regime compared to the last time I took Parnate lithium and prazosin. I wonder
Parnate 40 mg (titrating rapidly)
nortriptyline 150 mg
Lamictal 200 mg
Abilify 10 mg
lithium 300 mg
prazosin 30 mg
Wish me luck! I could sure use it.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
