At a dead end- stop meds or switch.

Posted by Diana1981 on May 25, 2013, at 8:40:22

Bi polar anxiety and depression are in my immediate family,so I am not surprised. After intense mood swings and intense obsessive thoughts and anger fits I started counciling and medication. I have tried several mood stabilizers and abilify. All of which made me fall asleep throughout the day. I am currently on triliptal 150 mg twice a day ( as of last week due to a salivating and burning sensation in my mouth) and Effexor 35 mg a day. My obsessive thoughts are less and my anger fits however
I have gained 6 lbs- and in return am very depressed
Crave carbs and sugar all day long
No Lobito
And very lethargic. All I want to do is sleep and be anti- social. By 3 pm I am even braindead and crash.

What do I do. I don't want to exercise like I usually do and I don't feel fulfilled or happy. I am in close contact with my Dr. But we have tried so many meds she now needs suggestions..
Do I stop the triliptal. If however I take less that weird and uncomfortable salivating and burning feeling in my tongue might return. Up the Effexor. Or maybe try a different anti depressant?

I am so uncomfortable and just numb.
