Yesterday was my appointment with my psychiatrist. It went really well. I brought a list of everything I wanted to talk to him about, so I wouldn’t forget anything. It was very helpful. He listened to everything I said as well as all of my requests.

I am now off Deplin, because I don’t feel that it has helped at all. He increased my Cogentin at night for the dystonia, just like I asked. He also said I could get off of the Inositol since it wasn’t working either.

I talked to him about the twitches I’m having in my hands that cause me to drop things. He said there was a name for it, but the only solution would be to go off some other meds, such as Lithium and Tegretol. I don’t want to do that at this time. I told him about the extreme nausea that’s been happening this past week, but we both agreed that it’s most likely from Elmiron, which I take for my bladder disorder. The Clozapine is causing the drowsiness during the day.

He is also going to check my thyroid level, Lithium level, Tegretol level, blood sugar level, and cholesterol. I’m very pleased with this appointment.

When I got home, I took a nap that lasted about 6 hours. I don’t know why that happened, but I couldn’t keep my eyes open. I feel better so far today.

  1. I’m so happy for you! I’ve been having problems trying to get a balance on my sleep. I still resist increasing my dose because I don’t want to feel “foggy” as it will affect my school and I work nights. I’ll be able to sleep but then it will be hard to get out of bed, exercise, stay awake, concentrate, drive. You see?
    It’s all about choices. I’m good for now. I’m not getting enough sleep but as long as I get a little bit here and there, I’m fine. I hope you’ll be ok. I have an appointment, tomorrow, too.
    I missed mine last month and as much as I want to be off meds I know I’m not ready with all the stress at work, home and school.
    take it easy. 🙂

    namaste!
