Re: Switching from Abililfy to Saphris.

Hi Lamdage.

My manias were indeed severe and overtly psychotic. Religiosity was the major theme. Mania for me is generally dysphoric. Parnate more so than Nardil. Although I was energetic and industrious at the beginning of each mania, the mania became destructive as it grew more severe. I lost my job and my marriage.

My depression has eased this morning. I took a 10 mg dose yesterday. It was too much all at once. I thought I could take a loading dose. I was impatient. I was left dizzy and sedated. It wasn't pleasant. I'm okay now, and will remain at 10 mg/day taken in divided doses.

Thanks for reminding me about metformin. If I have the same weight-gain and triglycerides issues with Saphris that I had with Abilify, I will ask my doctor about it.

I'm not volunteering right now. I left my position last August when my mother had spinal surgery. Afterwards, I had my bout with septic shock. The commute was getting too expensive, anyway. My guess is that I will feel employable later this summer as I eventually discontinue the Parnate and move on to Trintellix and Effexor.

Do you have a plan in place to treat your condition(s)? Have you reduced your dosage of Seroquel?

I always appreciate your kind concern.
