I don't really mind my neighbor but I am afraid that I might get dragged into things somehow.

Sigh I talked with my psychiatrist today and she prescribed wellbutrin. I am scared I have a history of really bad reactions to antidepressants. We are starting on a low dose but I am still worried that this may kill me.

She told me that wellbutrin is known for not having as much highs. The problem isn't the highs, it's the lows. I am terrified of antidepressants. I also told her that if anything hinky happens with my mood I am stopping immediately. The problem is if the notice that I gets is spiraling down into despair and pain, it might be too late.

On a side note I found out today that it is not a common occurrence for nurse to ask a 48 year old patient effectively if they want a DNR. Apparently I was more dehydrated then I thought.

We're the same age.
Julie you must have been in bad shape if they brought up do not resuscitate (DNR?)

Glad you're being careful about the antidepressants and watching out for their effects on you. 
I was prescribed that one for a pretty long time. Did you know they use it for quitting smoking, as well as depression?

It's odd how some medicines have different uses, she also wants me to go back on abilify an antipsychotic to help control the highs that I might get from the wellbutrin. It is also used for anxiety and I am also on something for parkinsin's disease for ongoing headaches I've been having throughout my life.

Dear Julie:
It is always interesting to me that when a doctor gives us a prescription drug to treat a condition, that sometimes they must prescribe another drug to counteract the unwanted side-effects..... and on and on can seem.

Please be careful and be sure to keep your doctors informed of any new issues or changes in your condition that continue to be a concern for you.

Stay healthy!!!
HUGS,
Danielle

Well I don't have to worry about it until after I see my GP on the 10th, but after that oh you better believe that I am going to be keeping an eye on my moods with this new medication.

Well I talked to my doctor today and I am going to have to sanitize my apartment of anything I might use to hurt myself under the influence of wellbutrin, YAY. I will be starting early next week and she said that she would call on oct 1 to see how I am doing. I am really hoping that being on hrt is enough to stop the wild mood swings.

I am hoping and praying that your new meds will be of great benefit to you.... and that any adverse side effects will be minimal.

I will be looking in on your thread and your various posts around the forums to check up on you.
Thank you for sharing.

I really have not much hope that it will help, my hope is that it doesn't cause any permanent damage. They are a different type of antidepressant from what I have likely tried in the past so that gives me some hope but we will see over the next couple of weeks.

Well I'm a week into taking wellbutrin and so far I haven't had any massive mood swings so here's hoping I got lucky.

I am so very glad to read that all seems to be OK with your medication.

Continue to keep your doctor advised....

Bleh not feeling the greatest today. Not as bad as I had feared but noticeable. The problem is I don't know if this is natural or because of the wellbutrin. It is survivable mostly I just want to lay down and cry.
At least I am getting ready to game which should distract me for a few hours.

I was still pretty down most of the day so I am thinking it is more my fault then the wellbutrin.
