I just had to ask O what the drug’s name was. Her response “have you already repressed it!?!?.” We both laughed.
I stop taking the Seroquel tonight. I was on a very small dose: 12.5mg, which is half of the smallest pill available. Doses range up to 400mg or 600mg, so it was very small. But it had its effects, and for me, it is a huge step towards moving on.
Remembering to take my drugs every morning and every evening is one of the central markers, and anxieties of my day. Once every three weeks or so I forget, and my day is usually pretty bad (whether I remember that I forgot, or not — it’s not psychological… I mean it is psychological… i mean… LOL)
I met with my psychiatrist today and he approved dropping the seroquel. He also wanted me to start titrating off of the Lexapro starting tomorrow morning. I’m going to Berlin the day after tomorrow, and I suggested that between the jet lag, and how dark Berlin is in the winter, I would probably be best coming off the Lexapro when I come back. He agreed.
So one down, one goes down when I get back from Berlin, and the other starts coming down when I am done with the second.
Hopefully I sleep well tonight (esp as the seroquel makes me very drowsy)
