Haven’t posted in a bit. I guess I just didn’t have much to say or share. I’ve been taking Saphris for two months now, finally taking 10mg at bedtime and 10mg at noon. It has made life much better. I don’t have pressured speech at the moment, I am much less anxious and obsessive, and I am more motivated, albeit a little drowsy at times. Called my psychiatrist today and asked to be put on Contrave. It’s a combination Wellbutrin/Naltrexone medication for controlling appetite. I’m hoping it will help, along with exercise to lose this weight I’ve gained since being on antipsychotics for my mania. I’ve gained over 100 pounds in two and a half years even with a restricted diet and no added sugar, along with giving up soda. Things are otherwise going well, just hoping the drowsiness becomes less and less. I did finally settle on a name for my black kitten. His name is Licorice.
