I am home from the hospital. Thank you all for your support! I read all your responses to my last post. Unfortunately they completely messed up my medications. I saw four different psychiatrists and they all changed something. They stopped my Lexapro when it was suppose to be taking more. I was taking ten now I am was suppose to take twenty. They also stopped my Tegretol and Lamictal. I went in because of depression so it makes no sense. They decreased other medications too (Neurontin). The only way I felt better is if I took Haldol. Obviously I don't have a script for that. That is just for the hospital. Now I am back on the Lexapro, Tegretol, Lamictal, Neurontin, Ativan, Seroquel XR...

I see my psychiatrist on Friday and my therapist on Thursday.

I will return to work next Thursday. Hopefully the visual and auditory hallucinations will stop by that point. I also hope the racing thoughts stop.

Anyway...

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT!!!

I hope things improve for you as well. Going to the hospital is a scary thing all by itself; I give you lots of credit for having such a great attitude.

im glad you went in. Its time to take care of yourself. I'm sorry you are off the saphris. You said that helped for voices. Hopefully they will go away.

Good luck with this new mixture.

IDNK,

I just got out too , but I'm a currently a partial patient for the next week or so. The split my abilify up, took me off an expensive sleeping pill and put me on temazepam, and they also put me on Toprol XL for my high blood pressure. Slept a lot better past few nights. I'm glad your back. You seem a lot better now.

Chris
