Scott, thanks for the insight.
I have wondered if I have too many meds going on at one time. A little of this and a little of that seems odd to me.
I guess that is why I am wondering if I need to get down to a more refined regime.
I appreciate my doc offering me either Wellbutrin or Adderall. But I'm not sure about the low dose of everything else. Seems odd.
Seems like a lot of folks do fine on a few meds.
I don't want to be one of those people that take 7 meds.
I don't know. My doc is closing her practice and I don't see her for another month, which will be our last session. Then I will be on to a new doc.
I wonder if 300mg of Trileptal a day even helps?
Maybe several drugs at low doses do help. Not sure.
Maybe I need to increase my Lithium instead up taking more and more Klonopin.
Right now I won't stop any of the meds until I talk to my doc on the phone (if I can get her on the phone). But, I would like to be able to take low dose Adderall for depression and ADD, but I need more of a mood stabilizer and maybe that is Lithium, combined with some Klonopin and it will be ok.
