Hi jc, I am so sorry for what you have had to go thru. It absolutely seems like 22 pills/day & 4 ADs is a little extreme--like they should be able to narrow it down better than that. I find that my pdoc tends to just keep adding things to the mix without taking anything away (b/c "we can only do one experiment at a time") so that I end up on extra stuff that I know isn't working for me.

I am also so sorry about your unhelpful trips to the hospital. You need more hugs? Doesn't everyone? I can't believe she would just blindly tell you to stay on all the pills, not address your issues with the quantity of them, and then just send you home without any plan for someone to watch the pills or take care of you.

I wish I had some great advice on how to get them to lower the number of meds you're on, but I'm definitely struggling thru the same thing. I don't know...I would take any meds if I thought they would really help. It's the handful of pills that I have to take but that can't prevent this kind of episode that I object to. My therp promises me that at some point we will find the right combination of pills to make this better, but there are times it's hard to have faith.

After hearing your story, I just wanted to say I'm really very glad that your friend happened to find you in time. You sound like a very perceptive person and it was kind of you to post here when you have been going thru so much lately. Good luck to you.
