Usually there’s not a lot of Strategy for dealing with me and medication changes except for “don’t start a new med on Friday because you can’t get to a doctor over the weekend” and “try to stay out of the emergency room.”
Admittedly, the ER thing has happened more times than I wish to count with new medications. I don’t seem to do well with many of them, and I get extreme headaches, weird allergic reactions, and other assorted issues with regularity. Rarely I have had psychiatric reactions so severe that I have landed in a psychiatric unit.
That last one I am trying to avoid with this current new medication. To say I’m not a fan would be the understatement of the year. It’s supposed to be an ADHD medication that has a stimulating effect, but instead it has caused massive depression and exhaustion.
I’m so sensitive to meds it’s not a surprise, it’s just very discouraging. It was supposed to help with my mood some along with some other things. All it’s doing is making things worse.
New battle for tomorrow.
