AM 250 Nuvigil
PM 3/25 Symbyax, 300 Lamictal, 5 Zyprexa, 40 Latuda
Latuda is back! Remember when I called it a pretentious fart and the bust of the century? Well, that was then and this is now. The difference? When I tried it, it had only been on the market for a couple of days. I was one of Dr. Crazy's first patients to try it. We tried it with the hopes of replacing Zyprexa, my fat pills. Didn't happen. Without Zyprexa I returned to my craziest self.
Dr. Crazy now has more experience with Latuda, and although one of my main goals is to get rid of Zyprexa and the one million pounds I gained taking it, that just isn't my current reality. The experience Dr. Crazy has gained with Latuda has brought him to the conclusion that Latuda plus Zyprexa often works better than Zyprexa or Latuda alone. So I am trying them together. I really appreciate Dr. Crazy's diligence. He never completely writes of a crazy pill. He continues to learn about them hoping to find better treatment for his patients. And usually does. Cheers and snaps for Dr. Crazy.
The synergy of medications working together is fascinating. Symbyax is a perfect example. Symbyax is a combination of Zyprexa and Prozac. Can Zyprexa and Latuda be best friends too? Maybe. Maybe not. But I am damn well going to give them a chance.
I believe two house cats are often happier than one, so perhaps that will also be the case with these crazy pills? Okay, you got me, I only used the cat example so I could post a picture of my cats.
It's easy to write off a crazy pill - to call it a pretentious fart and bid it farewell. I have said, "See ya later sucker!" more than once to more than one pill, (especially Saphris!) but it's important to be willing to give them a second chance if necessary. I'm not going to lecture you about being open to different treatments. Ooops I just did.
You see crazy pills are crazy.
They act differently for different people, differently for the same person at different times, but also differently together.
Put trust in your Dr. Crazy.
Give crazy pills a chance...and then give them a second chance.
Except Saphris. That stuff tastes like poison, and I'm not convinced it's not poison. No, I take it back. Saphris may work really well for you. But you were warned - it tastes like p-o-i-s-o-n. However it now comes in the flavor black cherry. Perhaps black cherry poison is more tolerable than the original poison flavor.
Moral of the story kids...don't be too quick to say adieu.
Until next time...
