So the docs think I have it and are medicating me for it. I have to agree with them after anaylzing the symptoms. The medications have crappy side effects, mainly that they make me really drowsy and sometime give me temors. What is worse is that I also have a haital hernia that I take several medications for. All cause dry mouth and some lught headedness or dizzyness. How the hell am I supposed to get through a day when the side effects nearly keep me in bed all day.

I feel like the benefit of the drugs are not worth the cost. I am so damn medicated right now I have to have one of those little SMTWTFS pillboxes then one for morning, noon, evening and bedtime to break it down farther each day. I take Welbutrin, Lamictal, Risperdal, Ambien CR, Reglan, Aciphex and Zantac. A total of 15 pills each day. I feel like my grandmother when it comes to pills and pillboxes and she is almost 90.

It is driving me crazier.

Who can put up with it? I am sick of medications, and as of yet have not felt any better with them. The doc is ramping up the ones for the Bipolar, only been 3 weeks, so maybe I am not to where I feel the benefit, but at this point all the medication is iritating the hell out of me.

Sorry for the ranting. 😐

the bipolar meds make me very tired also. With all of them do you need the ambien or could you just take the meds at night with a hot cup of herbal tea?

IM ON BUNCHES OF MEDS TO.THEY HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN THROUGH THE MEDICATION BOOK WITH ME OVER THE LAST 13 YEARS AND ONE OF THE SYMPTOMS OF BIPOLAR IS THAT WE USUALLY WILL NOT REMAIN ON MEDICATION EVEN THOUGH WE ARE SUPPOSE TO TAKE IT THE REST OF OUR LIVES,COUPLED WITH ANTIDEPRESSANTS AND ANXIETY DISORDER MEDS,IT SEEMS LIKE SOMETIMES WE ARE TO HEAVILY MEDICATED TO FUNCTION WITH EVERYDAY LIVES BUT YET THEY EXPECT US TO.I FEEL YOUR AGGITATION ON THAT MATTER.
