Medication Update

Cymbalta

I’m almost two months (day 56) into 30 milligrams of Cymbalta each day. Thankfully my anxiety seems to be waning (almost completely gone, really), and my depression seems to be steady (at a mild- instead of severe-) swing. I have yet to notice any bad side effects, but I have a decently strong system and am still on a low dose.

Lyrica

I’m ten days into using a whole 50 milligrams of Lyrica at night to help me sleep and tackle some of the general pains I’m living with. I notice a bit of a change, but the breakthrough pain I’m having is not worth dealing with. When I read that many patients take upwards of 600mg of Lyrica daily (sometimes even more!) I am encouraged that perhaps I can find a solid dose of this medication.

Prazosin

This stuff is bunk for me. I’m going to ask my psychiatrist to write it off my charts. I am on 1mg (one!) and notice no change if I miss a dose or if I take it super regularly.

Enlyte-D

I’m almost six months into the use of this levomefolic acid food supplement and I won’t ever go without it. I could tell within days that it changed my system and genetic testing shows I’ve got a genetic mutation preventing the methylation of folate … might as well stick with it since it’s working!
