> I'd just ditch it and try something else. Low dose abilify, lamictal..I dunno. I wouldn't ramp it up to full antipsychotic levels.

To all:

I couldn't take it anymore. Even at 120mg, I was still agitated, although not as much. I called the Doctor and he agreed, Geodon was not the one for me. He suggested the Geodon AAP because it augments the effects of the other meds / boots their effectiveness, and I've tried other "atypical" sleeping medications and darn near every other SSRI out there. He prescribed Trazodone 150mg 1-2 tablets at bedtime. He told me I could start out at 50-100mg to figure out what my comfort zone was. I was still pretty jacked up last night so I took a full 150, and i went to sleep, but woke up after 5 hours. I'm hoping as the effects of the Geodon wears off that the 150 will work much better. If not, I can go to 200, 250 or 300. Trazodone is pretty much weight neutral, etc. so that is good.

My question remains.. I am on 300mg of Wellbutrin plus 225 of Effexor and 200mg of Topamax (the Topamax for weight loss) and the other NDRI/SNRI cause weight loss yet I'm not losing an ounce even with the Topamax.. What am I doing wrong? Did the Remeron screw me up permanently? My thyroid is fine, or at least it was before the Remeron. I don't feel sluggish or anything like that. I dropped 10 lbs right when I stopped the Remeron but that was it. It stopped there, and I've been at the same weight since. I'm trying to increase my protein intake significantly and I don't eat many refined carbs, I take a whole food multi, New Chapter Wholemega (Omega Fatty Acids), drink lots of water, and take a Men's Probiotic.

Should I give CLA a try?
