New year, new meds update.
Geodon – Phasing out. From 200mg to 160 to 80 to 0mg
So we can phase in…
Adderall – 5mg starting in 1 week
Cymbalta – 90mg
Trileptal – 300mg in the AM, 600mg in the PM
Ambien – 10mg
Ok for those of you who are new to the game, here is the break down.
Geodon is an antipsychotic. I take it to help with my rages and mood swings. It helps boost my dopamine. But we are phasing me off of it due to overlap with the Adderall.
Adderall is a stimulant. It will hopefully help with my ADHD. Adderall will boost my dopamine and norepinepherine. I start is in about a week once the Geodon is phased out.
Cymbalta is an antidepressant. It helps with my depression. It boosts my serotonin and norepinepherine.
Trileptal is a mood stabilizer. It helps with my mood swings. It increases the effectiveness of my GABA receptors.
Ambien is a sleep aid. It knocks me the fuck out is what it does. It also messes with my GABA receptors.
And there you have my medication update.
