Thinking of Tweaking My Combo. Thoughts Please?

Posted by Louisiana Sportsman on June 14, 2015, at 16:22:39

Last night, I did it. My PDOC said I could if I wanted I took my last pill of 30mg. Mirtazapine. That's my first step in the right direction, IMO. I'm thinking about coming off Latuda next. I suffer from unipolar major depression and generalized anxiety disorder.


Pristiq 50mg.
Wellbutrin XL 300mg.
Topamax 200mg.
Gabapentin 1,200mg.
NAC 1,200mg.
Fish Oil 1,000mg.
Zinc 150mg.
Caffeine 400mg.
Prilosec 20mg.
Aspirin 81mg.
B-Vitamin Complex with Folic Acid ~g.


Latuda 40mg.
Topamax 100mg.
Gabapentin 1,200mg.
Valerian Root 1,000mg.
Melatonin 3mg.
5-HTP 200mg.
NAC 1,200mg.
Fish Oil 1,000mg.
Zinc 150mg.

My PDOC meds are:

Pristiq 50mg.
Wellbutrin XL 300mg.
Latuda 40mg.
Topamax 300mg.
Gabapentin 2,400mg. (Actually taken as 600mg X 4)

Thinking about adding Buspar to capture back Latuda 5-HT1A partial agonism without the heavy duty antipsychotic action. It would also provide that action mirtazapine would give there when it antagonized the 5-HT receptors save that one without the weight gain and sedation side effects. Good idea?

Am I taking too many supplements? Which ones do I need to not take and which ones am I not taking that I need to take?

Any advice regarding my regimen would be greatly appreciated. Before you warn me about serotonin syndrome with combing 5-HTP with a SNRI, find me one case report in the literature where a normal 5-HTP added to someone taking a therapeutic dosage of a SSRI or SNRI suffered serotonin syndrome. BTW, I think it helps my depression 10% and curbs my appetite 20% so it's worth it for me lol.
