lustral dosage

Postby desperate788 » Mon Jan 29, 2018 10:53 am

My doctor upped my lustral dosage to 150mg he thinks I take 100mg already but in fact I take 50 mg I'm reluctant to take so much ads want to be cured by as least as possible drugs. What do you say?

Hi :)
Personally, I would tell my doctor the dose I am taking.... Your doctor is there to guide you with the meds, and s/he can only do that efficiently if they know you exactly what dose you are on. Take care.

Herbie's right as always; your doctor should know the truth -- but this isn't a confession, it's a statement of how high a dosage you're prepared to take. Higher doses of head drugs can easily make you so numb you can't function, and I know you're struggling with work as it is. I understand your desire to stay away from anti-Ds as much as possible, and I've never seen you write that you want to hurt yourself or anyone else.

A question for your doctor is, why did s/he increase the dose? If it doesn't work, it doesn't work.

A question for you is: have you been looking for a less stressful job?

There are a few concerns about ads first of all they probably don't work, I'm loaded with too many drugs for a long time that might have negative effects on my kidneys or may cause other health concerns, ads are not suitable when you are taking a.p. medication and may cause mania or mania like symptoms like confusion. By the way my holiday is ending Monday it was tense and angry holiday because of the cleaning guys attitude I make small things a problem and damage only myself it's idiotic but I just can't stop it tried everything this anger causes pressure on my mind and I worry If I damage my brain there is one day left to work I will try to enjoy tonight and tomorrow thanks candid for commenting on my thread and I don't know why doctor increased the dosage he investigated my anxiety like symptoms asked me if I can sit somewhere for a long time without a problem, if I have rapid heart beat and anxiety symptoms I think he suspects depression I hate my job and Monday I have to work again damn I think finding a new job is very hard for a lethargic and unmotivated person like me

Who are you angry at? Yourself? If you're fighting yourself, you can't win.

It pains me to see you beating yourself up with words like "idiotic", "lethargic and unmotivated". You need a lot more faith in yourself and your ability to solve your own problems without drugs. Try telling yourself you're a survivor, you're strong, you are the decision-maker, no one else is running your life.

You can change the facts if you want to. The thought of change comes before the change. If you keep doing the same things, you keep getting the same results.

All I do is going to work, eat and sleep. I would like to have a much more variant life. Art, travelling, partner outdoor activities but I just work eat and sleep everyday for years quite fed up. But even worse is this work pressure on me if I face a legal trouble I just want to do them and get relaxed.
