  1. I live in a 5 story apartment building and last May, 2012 my best friend who was living with her ex husband, she suffered a massive stroke that left her parallized on her left side. At the same time, the ex husband had been admitted into the hospital for toe and partial foot amputation. Actually both suferred from mental illness that they must take daily medication for. Anyway, 4 weeks later she died. I understand the loss of a spouse. My 1st husband died September of 1996. anyway, I tried my best to be supportive of my neighbor. I would bring him to his doctor appointments and when his mental health doctor recommended for him to go to a bereavement counsieling group I offered to go with him Well, he refuses to get the help that his doctor prescribed. And now 8 months later this neighbor is completely off his rails. He is constantly annoying myself and other tenants in our building. He pounds on my front door sometimes 8 to 10 times a day. He wants to use the phone even thoughhe has his own phone. He talks about how he is impotent and how, well, I can't mention. And just before Christmas of 2012 the police came to my door and told me that this neighbor says I have a key to his apartment and that I stole these poems he wrote. First of all he lied through his teeth. This is a situation that is totally out of control. I tried talking to his sister about what's going on and apparently he was going inpatient for treatment. Well, the very next day he was at my door again. This man needs serious inpatient treatment. When he takes his meds he is a very nice person but off his meds he is absolutely obnoxious! The police won't do anything. What is it going to take for this man to get the proper mental health treatment so that he can get better?
  2. So I was on .5mg of risperidone and 100mg of sertraline, but I was having some side effects. The risperidone caused me to gain a lot of weight and the sertraline um... decreased libido. I was rlly unhappy with this and complained to my psychiatrist. She switched me to 1mg Guanfacine and 50mg sertraline. So my problem is that 2 days after I started, I started having dry mouth (a side effect of guanfacine apparently) and I had an anxiety attack bc I was afraid I was getting diabetes. I've gotten over that but I still have dry mouth and have been feeling a lot more anxious than I used to before switching. I'm really not happy with how I'm feeling (the dry mouth sucks and I hate it and having an anxiety attack for a week isn't fun either) I fear that the dry mouth side effect will never go away and I'm also scared that Ill never find a medicine that'll help me or that I'll have to go back on risperidone (bc again, weight gain is not what I need) please help me, thanks!
  3. A drug that's been used for a long time for another purpose can treat also some cases of AD-resistant depression and shows a strong anti-suicidal effect! http://www.cbc.ca/radio/quirks/psychedelic-drugs-and-depression-runaway-stars-bird-flu-battle-and-more-1.4036396/can-psychedelic-drugs-work-magic-on-depression-1.4036497 Just think of it: A drug can make you stop to want to kill yourself, without making you "just ignore reality" (as alcohol etc.). Can you now see your suicidal ideation more as a symptom of your brain's illness than as something worth obeying, following? I hope at least some of you can... Hang on, don't hurt yourself; it can be cured. Perhaps not by a med, or not only by a med, but treatments and supports are available even now. And science keeps making progress... Take care, everybody!
  4. Hi I was admitted to my local hospital on Friday after suffering a seizure for the first time in my life. I'm diagnosed bipolar with some major anxiety, and my prescriptions prior to my admission were Wellbutrin SR 200mg twice daily Lamictal 150mg twice daily (mood stabilizer) Neurontin 300mg three times daily (anti-anxiety) Levora (birth control) Xanax .25mg twice daily as needed Rozerem at bed time They of course saw Wellbutrin and decided to blame the seizure on that, but I'd been on a high dose of it for years and (as you can see) am taking two anticonvulsants with it... I've heard that the amount Wellbutrin lowers the seizure threshold by is not as much as some sensationalize it to be as well. They also decided that a mass in my brain an MRI detected two weeks ago could have absolutely nothing to do with it either, just the wellbutrin. The doctor decided that without even looking at the MRI images by the way. To "fix" this, they cut my Wellbutrin from 400mg a day to 200mg a day with no tapering whatsoever. Does that alarm anyone else? I feel like cutting down that much with no taper is more dangerous than having kept me on it. I've been a mess since I started the lower dose, my mood swings are back full swing (no pun intended) and I'm having scary thoughts ie I feel like I'm going to end up hurting myself somehow because I feel too miserable to be alive... all the great progress I made over the past 4 years has started to unravel and I'm freaking out. Am I wrong to think this was a bad decision on the doctors' part? I wasn't scheduled to see my psychiatrist for about 3 months since we didn't make a change to my meds (although something got screwed up with the Neurontin so that's something else I need to tackle) and tomorrow is a holiday so I won't be able to talk to them til at least Friday... I'm hoping when I do contact them I can get an emergency appointment squeezed in, am I being too optimistic in hoping for that? The doctors ended up raising my lamictal to 200mg twice daily, but I couldn't even get the new RX today because my insurance was being monstrous. They didn't bother to change the 12 hour wellbutrin to the 24 hour one while I was in the hospital either. I'm getting so desperate that I want to just start taking my regular dosage again without consulting my physicians, but I know jumping up by 200 is dangerous too -- but if someone here has the experience to tell me it would be alright I am more than open to that advice. I cannot wait any longer to get back to the 400 and I'm worried I will end up back in a psychiatric ward if I have to. Best part is they couldn't find a cause for the seizure. EEG came back normal. No epilepsy. But let's not address the mass on my pineal gland or anything, heaven forbid we discuss that as a possible cause! Also, I had a 3 month long UTI that resisted the antibiotics I took for it... they treated it with cipro in the hospital via IV but due to an allergic reaction they had to stop the cipro after just a day or two. Anyway... I don't know what to do and I need help. Thank you.
  5. How come I feel gray? I don't know how I feel about anything? I don't really know how I feel anymore. Everything is just gray, and I don't know how I'm feeling inside. I don't really feel anything most of the time. I just exist. Alive but not living I'm not particularly sad or angry or anything, just really "gray". I've seriously thought about suicide before not attempted but almost, but I haven't done it because I was scared. That was a long time ago like 3 years ago. I feel like Im lost in a state of mind. I dont know who I am. Its sad really. Im seeing a doctor but I still feel this way. My behavioral doctor said that I have "chronic unspecified depression" (I dont know what that is) but he prescribed me Bupropion (Wellbutrin) and ive been taking it for 2 years now. I use to take Setraline (Zoloft) but the sid effects were bad so now Im taking Buspar and Bupropion. I feel a tad bit better but only a little bit! Most of the time I feel nothing really and if not I feel negative. The only thing ive notice that makes me happy or upbeat is the music on my playlist and movies thats it. I dont know if its my ADD though the reason why Im feeling nothing in my head 90% of the time! Otherwise Im unmotivated and not really interested in alot of things like as in careers. I kind of want to read my journal since my last visit but its not pretty and im embarrassed. IDK why but I HAVE NOT consider doing this because Im afraid of blood and pain but Im very scared of the sight blood I turn away anytime I see it in person or on TV but sometimes. I dont want to do this either but I see images of myself (in my head) cutting myself with a knife. Again I DON'T want to do this but when I see a knife I sometimes have an image in my head of me doing this. I wonder what thats all about? Does that mean I want to do it in my subconscious mind? Now I havent told my doctor about Ill feel like a psycho! The only "self harm" Im doing and had been doing is scalp picking my head it relieves me have doing it since I was like 10 or 11 but anyways it cuts the anxiety for me but there are negatives you can have hair loss and your scalp could be damaged with scars I still do it but Im trying to stop. I thought about putting gloves on my hands but I think it looks weird on me!
