General Discussion / Re: Latuda starting tomorrow

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!

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.


that sounds good Paul - I think I will apply for that - I am waiting for EI sick benefits to see if I qualify for them :) xoxo

General Discussion / romantic relationships and the effect of mental illness

Hi everyone - I am going through quite a bit right now - getting ready for a big med change and having to cancel our wedding due to stress - although my fiancĂ© has indicated that he cannot continue with only him working - and it's highly unlikely I will be eligible for ODSP due to assets and his income.  I never see him because he is always working overtime - and not exaggerating - he leaves at 5 am - and I will be lucky if he is home by 9pm - it's usually midnight.  Just wondering who else has lost relationships because of their illness and the lack of partners being able to cope with the various issues.

thanks Paul and Dragonfly - Dragonfly that is what my cousin is also dealing with - she had been on Lithium for a long time too and now she is in kidney failure.  I guess we will see what happens in a couple of weeks

Yeah don't need the weight gain that's for sure - I wonder then if Lithium and ability might be better - I have to stop the valproate because of tremors - ugh this is going to suck (wait I have to think positive as negative thinking is bad for me) this will be great - LOL

Just wondering if anyone is on this combo - thinking I may ask for this from the Pdoc when I see him on the 24th - ughhh so not looking forward to all of this changing of meds!

Hi Paul - great to hear from you too - yes this med change has me quite nervous as I have experienced those brain zaps before - so I have a plan in place - to have friends and family around me as I go through any withdrawal - I really hope it isn't going to be too difficult - I will keep everyone in the loop as much as possible.  Take care :)

HI Rich - so good to "see" you!!  Yes I remember that evening - we all had a great time!  I am looking forward to the changes - it is the withdrawal from the Effexor that is scaring me - I know it is going to be difficult and hard on me - may have to dose myself significantly with Ativan during the withdrawal period.  good to hear your wife and daughter are doing well on it - I hope you are well also :)

Hi everyone - I am a long time member on here but I have not posted in a very long time - Paul M would remember me :)  Anyway, my Pdoc and I have decided to ween me off Effexor and Valproic Acid as I am having major tremors from the Valproate and my understanding is the latest research states antidepressants are not good for bipolar disorder.  Pdoc has suggested Abilify - so I am obviously anxious about this as the Effexor is hell to come off of and then starting something new doesn't exactly excite me either.  Anyway just wondered if anyone else has any experience with this similar situation.  It scares me tons  :'(
