    Med changes

    I am going through some massive med changes. Currently I just titrated off geodon and am titrating onto invega. I’m on day four of invega titration and tonight will take 6 mg for the first time. After getting off 220mg of geodon over the course of a week and now going up slowly on invega, my sleep is all over the place. Some nights I get 5 hours, others I get 12. My goal is to end up at 9 mg of invega. Thank goodness I’m on medical leave and long term disability, couldn’t handle this while working. Somehow managed to get through an interview after five hours of sleep and some hypomania. Next my doctor and I want to get me off lithium, a drug that’s messed me up with side effects. Let’s just hope I make it through the next couple of months. #medchange #Insomnia #Hypomania #MixedMania #tired

    Colestipol

    I took a drug called Colestipol for #IrritableBowelSyndromeIBS . It has to be taken so many hours apart from your other meds or they may not be absorbed. So I took Colestipol for 2 months and started having #MixedMania because my psych meds weren’t absorbed properly. I quit taking Colestipol. You need to be careful of all the medications that you take. #BipolarDisorder

    What does mania look like for you?

    I’ve been thinking a lot about this, and I’ve come to the conclusion that a lot of my behaviour as a child/young adult may have stemmed from early manic episodes.

    When I’m manic, I have this ball of electricity that sits in the pit of my stomach. When I try to sit still, my body tells me to get up and move around. I talk over people, don’t let people finish their sentences, and spend recklessly (though before my current relationship I would send myself into a spiral of sexual escapades that did nothing but leave me feeling worse).

    I feel like I can do anything at the beginning, and all of these incredible ideas race through me at 100 miles a minute. “I could start a non-for-profit, go back to school to become a psychologist who specializes in BP disorder.” I can clean the whole house in one day without stopping. I go most days with no food until the evening. My hunger is either surpressed or over eager, and my weight has fluctuated significantly for most of my life.

    I can’t help but feel alone in these symptoms, especially because I have not had an actual diagnosis yet (though I’m already being treated for BP I).

    So I want to know what your mania looks like. I want to know what other co-morbidities you may be suffering with. I want to start a conversation about what it’s like to live in the extreme highs from people that know what it feels like.

    Do any of you find that you become your most creative when you are manic? Especially when sleep in not really in your future? #Mania #creativity

    What helps you with #MixedMania ?

    I’m going through this. My psych appointment is next week. I’m crying a lot and staying up at night. I’m having touble being myself. I feel trapped and yet exposed. My physical health is taking a huge hit from this as well. Everything at once. #CheckInWithMe #Bipolar #Depression #Anxiety #PTSD #ADHD #IBS #Migraine
