What’s in your medicine cabinet?

My mad lovelies, I didn’t have a chance to write a blog post this week. A lot has been going on in my life between doctors appointments and starting an out-patient treatment program. I’m taking a lot of medication these days, and I’m sure a lot of you are as well. I know a lot of us take our medication in secret, often afraid of the stigma associated with taking meds.

So with that in mind — I’m opening my medication cabinet to you. Right now I’m taking 1200 mg Lithium, 250 mg of Seroquel, 150 mg of Zoloft, 0.25 mg of Synthroid, and 1 mg Clonazepam when needed.

What do you take? What helps? What gives you side effects?

  1. Hi Mad Girl. That photo reminds me of a movie I just saw, “Madame Bovary,” which was a great book, but boring movie. My medicine cabinet is:
    Brintellix, which is the newest antidepressant. allergic to lithium so I take Tegretol and Lamictal for mood stability. Instead of Klonopin (sp?) I take Tranxene. Same type of med. Also on Ritalin. Adderall gets me too high. can’t take. I’m in a depressed phase. It’s not horrible, but I’m 70% in the bag. Underwater.

  2. My med cabinet: 300mg Seroquel, 300mg Lamictal, 300mg Luvox, 8mg Prazosin. I was taking Klonopin as needed until I ran out.

    These meds work, but my lows are still really low. My highs are more managed. I will probably need a bump on lamictal soon and another benzo for panic. Do you find that your med doses have to constantly be increased? I seem to plateau a lot and need more.

  4. It looks like my last post didn’t go through. In case it didn’t, I’ll repeat what I said.
    I have uni-polar depression and I’m on:
    clonazepam (1 mg bid)
    propranolol (20 mg)
    aripiprazole (15 mg)
    lamotrigine (200 mg)
    desvenlafaxine (50 mg)
    eszopiclone (3 mg)
    I have pretty severe treatment resistant depression, so it hasn’t worked too well for me, but I think it has helped some.
