> Outcome speaks volumes. As I have said I feel great. There is no reason to try and change something that is working unless the persons health is declining. I do understand your concern but I'm not depressed now. I feel healthy and I continue to see my family doctor as well as a psychiatrist and counselor. They are all keeping an eye on my health and well being. The only problem is a bit of clouded thinking and slight memory problems. for example it takes me a a little more time to think of a response but it does come to me. Hopefully in time this will clear up because the cymbalta latuda and trazodone are pretty new. The xanax and tramadol I have been on for years and at first made me tired and clouded but that wore off as I hope will happen with cymbalta and latuda. Thanks for your post but everyone is different.
[...they are all keeping an eye...xanax and tramadol...].
Do they sit with you while you are taking a bath, if you take one?
You see, the two drugs are CNS depressants and can supress respiratory function. Taken together, the two have a greater supression than if only one is taken. One could drown in a bathtub.
Now you say that everyone is differernt. I am unsure as to what you are wanting to mean by that. If you could post answers to the following, then I could hav the opportunity to respond accordingly.
A. When 1000 people take the combo that you list here, what are the chances of the combo causing death, if you know?
B. Now Xanax is a drug where those taking it could have to go through a horrifying withdrawal if they stop the drug. Do you plan to ever stop that drug or are you thinking of taking it for life?
C. Are you aware that tardive dyskinesia can result by taking the drugs that you list here? If so, do you know if or if not you could be afflicted with that, or what the chances are of others that take any of those drugs of getting that?
D. If the medical liturature states that it is contraindicated, and could cause death, to take the combination of drugs that you list together, could you post here by asking your psychiatrist what his/her rationale could be for prescribing the drugs all at once to you?
E. If the prescriber's rationale is so that you will not feel depressed, in your opinion then, could someone take heroine without having to be criminalized and go to jail, on the same basis because that drug could make them feel not depressed?
F. Are you aware that more people die each month from psychiatric drugs than were killed in the 911 attacks?
