I take Seroquel, Topamax, Cymbalta and Lamictal. It seems like my thoughts are becoming more compulsive in certain things. Examples are that I can only have a certain amount of ice cubes every time, when a commercial comes on, I have found myself subtracting the numbers, and things like this. These thoughts all seem to be centered around numbers. This is really bothering me since it is so compulsive. Does anyone have the same problem? Also I have been on these meds and dosages for the past 4 months.
sounds like your having a frustrating time and the thoughts are trying to take power over you, ive found any thoughts that start getting in the way and disturbing my life get stronger if i let them. Its said about 80 % of our thoughts are recycled daily so getting them on paper and then writing if ther rational or not then replacing them with what you really would like to think can break the pqattern and after time become automatic. You can also get competative with it as it is the disease vs you and have a score board on a note pad were you tick the side if you win against the though and if it makes you do something compulsive you tick its side.Not sure if your spiritual im not religious but believe in a god and ask to hand this over to him or her. If you could journal your day for a few days and work out what times it happens and what commercials you are beaten at by what sound s like a real battle. you could take this information to your doc and he will have more to work with. My empathy is with you and i wish you were not suffering , but your looking for insight and awarness into your self so you have a better chance than most at getting ontop of this. I no its cruel how the human body and mind has to take on these battles and wish you well and will help if i can.sorry bout my typing and spelling not my strong area.
