Latuda starting tomorrow
« on: September 24, 2014, 12:02:23 PM »
So Pdoc decided to go with this rather than the abilify - I start tomorrow - there is no tapering off effexor as of yet - Pdoc doesn't want me going through too much - so we will see.

Medication changes can be difficult, but it sounds like your pdoc is going about it the right way. Good luck Jen!

so far so good - no depression feelings - have not started coming off the effexor - if he decides to do that I think that is when I will have a few issues - but the Latuda seems pretty good :)  will keep you all posted!

Good thing that your pdoc is only changing one thing at a time. With only one change you can see how you feel. With more than one change it is hard to see which drug may be effecting you.

I have had a previous pdoc change more than one drug at a time. It did not work well for me.

Wishing the best for you.

having an emotional day today - but it was supposed to be our wedding day so I am feeling down and about that - hopefully the feeling will lift soon - was hoping for no emotion with the new pills - so much for wishful thinking :S

Hi Paul - I am better thanks - it was a hard few days - I am reaching out to church again in an attempt to boost my spiritual side - and I have been meditating every night at bedtime to try and help bring my mind down a little bit - last night wasn't great tho LOL

Hello JennyRN70. I know that meditating is very good for some people. However for me, when I try it and I'm the least bit manic, I can't concentrate on one thought and when I'm depressed and I try I just fall asleep LOL.

 I have the same problem with Yoga. Manic, I can't sit still, depressed I fall over asleep LOL.

 Both are great methods of get and keeping well if they work for you.

 I know that you have had a long hard battle with your illness and I hope that you keep fighting and find something that works well for you soon.  To keeping trying when nothing seems to work is very hard work and frustrating, often it's easier to just give up.  Give yourself a pat on the back for all the effort that you have put in and keeping trying, someday you'll find what works.  Take Care. paul m

Thanks Paul - it is frustrating - especially if my anxiety is high - such as this weekend and my fiancÚ is being difficult lately - he may not know it but the guilt he causes me to feel whether intentional or not - feel like I should just leave the relationship sometimes :(
