I tried not to write too much.
I just keep getting more dysfunctional as my psychitrist/former psychiatrist just dropped me. She had her secretary email me to tell me my case is above her expertise and just as the compounding pharmacist finally got the formula for intravenous cyproheptadine. We have been working with oral cyproheptadine compounded 10 pills worth into 1 pill. And... yes this is going to sound crazy.. but I had to work up to around to about 17 pills worth by slowly letting my body/brain get tolerant to the antihistamine effect. It didn't work out because I would keep getting constipated and just scared to take that much. The intravenous form would have avoided the constipation side effect.
Anyways.. its about to complicate for me to explain fully what the situation is, but my psychiatrist and I kept could only see cyproheptadine as being able to help me. I had worked up to that dose over about 6 months. I started out taking 1 pill and I noticed my mood ever so slightly improving, it stopped helping after 2 days so I raised the dose then my mood got better and better ovet 6 months. But even though2 years later much of its effect has very slowly gone away, my tolerance to it has not gone away.
Anyways, I could keep writing all day because its so complicated. Cyproheptadine has been fixing the permanent effect had on me. Mirapex basically told my brain to stop making its own dopamine. I have tried normal dopmine increasing meds like adderall, ritalin and I could feel no effect from them. I also tried a few antiosychotics and I can't feel their effect either.
Ther ar no other meds thast will be able to help me. I read and read and read hoping to find something, but I can't find anything. I'm lost and almost hopeless. My brother is in the airforce and is moving back and I may start staying with him. He's going to try claiming me as a dependant and try getting me on his insurance. This might make me abe to stay at the vanderbilt psychiatric hospital, but I don't know if they will be able to do anything to help me. The only thing I can think of is them helping me with cyproheptdine. Injecting it for me and making sure I am able to tolerate the high dose
IS know I wrote a lot...
