    Fluoxetine for Bipolar disorder; Sleep disorders

    After being in psychological support again and again since 2004, or at least with a certain continuity, first of all because of severe depression (complete withdrawal from life, suicidal thoughts, lost courage in life). During this time, I fell ill with third-degree Lyme disease, which is the case I noticed by the three times occurrence of a Facilalis paresis and my psyche the rest gave (paralyzed face, sick leave, misdiagnosis without end, etc.This was also carried out with a weight gain of 55kg, in my case, a precise doubling of the GewichtesStandard 54kg This is partly attributable to the numerous antidepressants. Zoloft, clomipramine and whatever they are called … after the diet began to bear fruit I gradually ceased to feel better. Find 99 % of these meds make only impulsive and impotent and above all thick.Zumal there in 3 years no pill what m a state of mind has really changed what. Due to these negative experiences, I was after times in which I was fine and I never wanted to take antidepressants again … could after repeated strong mood swings with sometimes bad consequences and increasingly depressive mood, a visit to the doctor no longer be bypassed. My doctor then prescribed me After hard persuasion, fluoxetine would not make you fat, etc., just this medicine. Highly satisfied, as it does not fade, except for minimal discomfort the first week (but that has, with any psychotropic drugs). I highly recommend it. ZOPICLON, on the other hand, should really be treated with caution. “For the short-term treatment of sleep disorders … sounds nice … but this is impossible for someone who thinks to have sleep disturbances.” One falls asleep Stone the first of me for weeks, then you take half more, then you take one day a day to be relaxed in stressful situations … I have finally completely forgotten that NOBODY can fall asleep in the world within a minute I then five minutes in bed without having fallen asleep … suggested to me my mental dependence: I can not sleep and must take a tablet. This has nothing to do with Schalfstörungen for me, but is self-trained Behavior.Finde it catastrophic Doctors so thoughtless and then mostly to people who are mentally anyway something next to the track prescribe …

    I also voted against my Bipolar Affective Disorder Manic Depressive Disease called these two drugs together with my doctor after several years of searching in vain for the right medication. At the beginning, every fortnight I wavered between low mood and unnoticed hypomania. When I did not pay much attention to it and continued to work 60-70 hours a week and in the meantime gave birth to 2 children, it became so bad that I took the eighth train of the emotions at least 1-2 times that day , Today I know why I got this disease as a gift. Back in my teens, when I had very severe acne, my doctor prescribed me a drug called Roaccutan as a last resort, which allegedly drove at least 9 people into suicide. I was lucky enough to be able to control my suicidal thoughts and have myself admitted to open psychiatry. There I was prescribed lithium first. Then they experimented with different drugs from Trevilor to Zeldox or Atypical Neuroleptics like Sulpiride in small doses. But whenever the medications had helped for a few days, the effect simply stopped after certain times. And especially the hypomania was gone but the shit …… Depris were always there and I could not be happy anymore and always had something like a stone in the pit of my stomach. Until I found the combination myself with my doctor. The Seroquel helps me to protect myself in both directions. It helps me more against the exhausting hypo or partial mania. But it does not help enough against depression. That’s why I tried fluoxetine, and lo and behold, both medicines in combination have totally changed my life. When my doctor returned from the congress he said that for bipolar people it is the best combination right now to take these two medicines. At the beginning I had the lithium in addition to the seroquel and fluoxetine. I have asked my doctor to omit the exhausting lithium. He agreed and it came as it had to come. I became so manic that I became aggressive and turned on some people totally and turned off completely. When I was in the open two weeks, I was the seroquel increased by 50% and reduced the driving fluoxetine to a single dose. Since this hospitalization I have now the dose in the morning 100mg Seroquel and 20mg Fluoxetine. In the evening I take now 400mg Seroquel and that’s it. Since then, I feel something of normal as years no longer. I have no big weight gain from the Seroquel and then only between 2 and 4 kilograms. I was always tired and broken at the beginning with the treatment of Seroquel and did not get out of bed. This has changed with the dose increase. I can think clearer again and I can remember things again. So exactly the opposite what others are reporting here about the Seroquel. I have had the best experience with Seroquel and Fluoxetine. And if I have Parkinson’s in 20 years I do not care. Because then at least I was allowed to experience my good years in a normal and joyful way. I wish you all that it may be the same with you as with me. It took me almost 5 years to find the right medication.
