Depression sucks.

Posted by SLS on July 13, 2017, at 4:45:08

Hi, All.

I want to give you a list of the drugs that I am currently taking.

Parnate (tranylcypromine): 80 mg/day
nortriptyline 100 mg/day:
Lamictal (lamotrigine): 300 mg/day
lithium: 300 mg/day
Abilify (aripiprazole): 15 mg/day
prazosin 30 mg/day

Three days ago, I increased the dosage of Abilify from 10 mg/day to 15 mg/day. That's a 50% increase, which is substantial. I may have been underdosed for many years. I am now experiencing the beginnings of an improvement. For those that know me, you will recall that a dosage adjustment can tickle my brain into producing a robust improvement in depression, but one that does not last for more than 3 days. While I am grateful for any improvement and a respite from pain and frustration, I can't be truly encouraged until my current response persists for more than two weeks.

I am currently doing volunteer work at a facility dedicated to advocating for the mentally ill and reducing stigma of these illnesses through educating the public.

Depression sucks.
