im still in the hospital.. and i have come to find this was a really good decision to come here. Its a really good place.
The docs are determined to get me back on track, they are caring, they listen, they take side effects i get seriously.. there are Professors involved in the treatment... One of Psychopharmacology. This blows my mind.. i never felt so understood and cared for. I had high expectations coming here and they exceed them day after day.
This hospital does not schmooze with pharma-industry. They care for patients interests only.
After treatment i will be doing a Psychosocially supervised job without payroll.. Its okay though.. i do have this illness i have to deal with, but at least im ok financially. I look forward to have something to do again when im out of the hospital and who knows, maybe they can support me on the way back to the "real" job market.
So im still on 300mgs of Seroquel which is serving me well. Tomorrow i will take my last dose of Effexor and will switch to Parnate "Jatrosom". I do NOT have to wait for two weeks, instead they draw blood to see if they can start the Parnate already. They expect a week until i can start.
I am taking Acetylcystein regularly.. and i wonder when i should take this? Twice a day or all at once? Dosage?
Also i am coming off of Lithium which made me eat like crazy. I do not want to take it in any considerable dosage. Maybe i will take a very low dose if i can convince the doctors.
Im also interested in Glutamate antagonism so i consider a low dose of Lamictal in addition to Acetylcystein and super low dose Lithium perhaps.
I did feel stupid at 200mgs of Lamictal and i did loose hair due to Lamictal i believe.
Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome.
I am happy to not have to put any more "crisis" threads on here and hope to continue on recovery road.
