I’m not going to bother recreating the one post I couldn’t find cached. But basically I was doing worse, went into the psychiatrist and she is changing up my medical cocktail. The anxiety is mostly in check especially when I remember to take my Klonopin, but the depression has been up and down, mostly down. So I have been tapering the Prozac this week and start Cymbalta tomorrow. She gave me a lose dose sample and a script for twice the dosage. If I can manage to tolerate the Cymbalta, which from what I understand means, not puking my guts out. Then I fill the script. Prozac only works on one neurotransmitter, Serotonin; while Cymbalata works on two known to effect mood Serotonin and Norepinephrine. So two for the price of one. Well hopefully the price of one since I haven’t filled the RX yet. She said this will be much more fast acting that the Prozac so hopefully I will see a change before the weekend is over. But honestly just having a plan helps lift my mood.
I saw my Social worker today. I like her so far. Seems intuitive and called me on stuff pretty quickly. Today is not a bad day. On a scale of 1 to 10. 1 being the night I couldn’t get out bed, and 10 being the time period the meds were working and I was very happy; I’d call today a 5 which is an improvement over yesterday’s 4. So that is my latest, and I have one more post to write before lunch is over so I am keeping this short.
