"MDJunction to me is a place of refuge. A place I can come to for the support that I need, as well as a place to support others in need. A place where I don't worry about being judged because of my disabilities & there are people who truly understand what I live with on a daily basis." (shamarie6)
I was born in LA and raised in New York. Lived in San Diego and landed in Portland, OR. I take lexapro10mg in the morning, plus just started lamictal 25mg in the morning eventually to ramp up to 100-200mg a day. At night I take seroque 50mg, and 2mg of clonazepam. I have horrible nightmares just before I wake up and usually start the day crying in my coffee. I also went through a recovery program to get off ativan, which is ironic since I"m back on benzo's . I gave up drinking alcohol myself and attend AA meetings. I never know whether my moods are from my disease or when I have a med change. My greatest wish is to wake up one morning without having had nightmares. I do alot of research on the web about nightmares and my medications. I know lamictal can cause nightmares but I just started it one week ago. the plan is once i"m stable on lamictal to wean off clonazepam slowly. I wonder if anyone out there is on clonazepam and suffering nightmares too....Read More
