Allreadygone: need help

Recommended Posts

Have you tried Magnesium?  I have been taking it and several times I stopped and then restarted it and I noticed a difference each time.  It takes the edge off my anxiety.

Yes, you can manage this. Please use CBT, meditation, or change the channel.

What time of day do you get this symptom? Is it better or worse at any time of day?

 

Please continue to move 12.5mg Lamictal one hour later every day.

 

Please do not make me remind you over and over about anything. I'm only human and this annoys me.

I have moved it up an hour a day today was 1045.The knot in my stomach hasn’t left me since this all kicked in.There has been a few moments here and there where I was able to eat @Altostratabut it’s persistent.i usually can get something down 9-1030 or after the 7.5dose of remeron.

Can you please include changes in the knot in your daily notes?

 

Look at it from my point of view: It's really impossible for me to remember everyone's symptom pattern, including yours, from day to day. I need to see the notes. Have some consideration and don't make me spend more time re-reading your topic. I'd like to have a life, too. Make it easy for me and put those notes out there in a clear way -- including the line breaks, even if you're on your phone.

Is this different from your prior symptom pattern. and how? Is the sweating a new thing? What do you mean by "agitated"?

Were other symptoms less than your prior symptom pattern? What was your sleep pattern?

I have an iPhone,line breaks like /&( )?          My symtom pattern is usually the same as in my notes but yesterday at 315 they were all to lesser degree other than Dp which may lesson a moment here or there.Still had no appetite.My sleep pattern has been wake up on couch 1-3 then rest till 4. @AltostrataI get like a sick no positive outlook feeling I can’t describe that stays with me.

A lesser degree is good. Please keep moving the 12.5mg Lamictal.

 

The "sick no positive outlook feeling" is anxiety you're generating with your worrying.

Much better. Thank you for the line breaks. Continue to move 12.5mg Lamictal later in the day.

 

You were getting an adverse reaction from taking 37.5mg Lamictal in the morning. Lamotrigine often works better in smaller dosages.

I pray your right the updose for a week must have completely destabilized me,is it because the Effexor has been lowered from 75-31.25 over the year maybe it needed to be lowered as well.I know drug interactions change with cuts?orry for the question,and thx for all your help @Altostrata

Looks like splitting the Lamictal dose is working well.

 

Up to you to set your bowel movement habits. Psyllium can be helpful.

I found adding a few prunes and 1/8 cup of bran sticks to my muesli for breakfast has helped with this problem.
