Maybe this is what stable feels like, but I've lost my interest AND ability when it comes to sex.
I'm up to 600mg of Oxtellar (long acting Trileptal) and it seems to work great for mood stability. But, having said that, I have no motivation whatsoever.
I can drop back to the 300mg tablets of Oxtellar and supplement with Klonopin 2-3 times a day ( usually just twice a day) and I can tolerate and stay stable, less numb but still no mojo.
So, again, I ask, is this was stable feels like? No sex drive, no interests? Just a blob on a couch?
I thought of adding back Abilify, but that made me super fat.
Now that I'm stable, is there a different med I should try for my bipolar depression? Anything better or safer for the heart than Geodon? (I worry because my mom has serious atrial fib heart problems).
I need my spark back people! I feel numb. Don't get me wrong, I do not want to go back to being unstable. This is the longest I've been stable in years, but I need to add something to the mix. I recently tried Adderall, but it gave me heart palpitations. Wellbutrin in the past has made me crazy manic. ADs give me bladder/urinary problems and take away sex drive. Geodon has been my go to for depression, but too little helps depression and makes me nervous and I think irritable and too much acts like a stabilizer and more numb. Geodon is a weird med.
I just want my sex drive and interests in life back.
