Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs Nobody has the right to lecture someone else on the dangers of a particular drug based on limited experience and no doubt freaked out by press reports. With the exception of AD, all psychiatric drugs have potential for abuse depending on the user, and they all affect different users diffe...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs Thanks for your message. I had a headache this morning, it could be dehydration. I drink lots of water when I wake up. I try not to take any pills, just do head massage and neck stretches which usually work. Today I was scheduled to see that awful psychiatrist but it was postponed because...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

I don't know if you read the Guardian article I posted on Aislings thread, but for me the most promising information was that clinical trials are proceeding using ketamine and psilocybin. Some problems with hallucinations but they should get it right eventually. Unlike other ADs, they work immediate...

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs Thanks for asking after me. Glad you got the increase in pregabalin which must be available in generic now. Maybe I should give another try. I took just 2 Tramadol today. I don't get the same buzz or narcotic effect but it's just enough to dampen the anxiety for most of the day. Also has ...

Hello Aisling

Venlafaxine is a bit of a strange one. The anxiety side effects last about 3 weeks then disappear when it kicks in. I'm on for the second time, Deb's has been on 12 years

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hi Debs Have you thought of starting meditation again? We know it's not a cure but it can do no harm. 5 minutes a day, 10 is enough. I do 15 minutes. It bores me and hard to concentrate at times but my wife says I sound calmer. I think once you can make it a daily habit it will stick. You're doing t...

Hi Aisling

You will not be evicted. The carer will see to that. It's part of her job

Re: How are things progressing Isap

Hello Debs

Sorry to hear about the way you are feeling. I understand it only too well.

The obvious next move is to raise pregabalin to 600mg. If it doesn't work, then there are alternatives but you can cross that bridge when you come to it.

God bless
