Wow Barb-cat!

You've done your homework! I knew I could count on you to know some of this stuff. The only other med I'm taking right now besides Li 600mg and Lam200mg is 15mg of Temazepam at night to sleep. It helps with the bruxism and my terrible sleep. I want to NOT be taking anything for sleep right now, but it is still sketchy. I don't want to raise my Li dose right now b/c I'm fearful of the stupor I experienced. I also felt a bit blunted emotionally after a couple of weeks. I don't want to have the personality of a rock. I'm feeling functional but dysphoric at this point. I still need sleep. I wonder if a pinch of zyprexa or seroquel would help my sleep and mood stability? Lots of questions for the doc!!

All in all, I feel loads better than I did a year ago. I read my diary from then to check if I had teeth clenching...OH MY GOD!! I was such a wreck!! Pages and pages of how I was really normal and just having problems with my past. It never occurred to me that I had a chemical imbalance. I remember crying and crying and feeling suicidal then. Worlds away from where i am now. I have the LUXURY of complaining about side effects!

I'm feeling close to normal today, and I just hope that I can get a normal night's sleep w/o the benzo.

Thanks so much for the info Barb-cat. I need to bookmark that post!

I hope you (and all) are well,
