I was at my psychiatrist the other day. I've been having trouble sleeping so I wanted to know if there was anything natural I could take with my current medication regimen (like melatonin). I also inquired about something natural for anxiety because I don't want to mess with my current anxiety meds. Instead of giving me suggestions, she sort of... gave me this look and upped one medicine while adding another. At first I was okay with it, I'm usually one to just go with what the doctor tells me... but over the last couple of days I've been thinking and wondering if perhaps I should've stood my ground because I really didn't want more prescriptions added.
For reference: I have major depression, GAD, and night terrors. I'm turning 21 at the end of this year. This is my new pill regimen after adding the new prescriptions:
Sertraline, 100mg, 2 per day
Lamotrigine, 100mg, 1 per day
Prazosin, 2mg, 2 per day
Clonazepam, 0.5mg, 1 per day
Trazodone, 50mg, 1 to 2 per day as needed
I'm also taking 2 50,000 Vitamin D (D2) pills per week, but this I'm not concerned with because my levels were severely low (and VitD deficiency runs in my family. Though I did ask if going to a lower dose as a maintenance would help after this script runs out... got shunned on that too )
I know most of us are not doctors, but I'd like to hear what others think? I personally feel like I may be taking too much, but I also may be thinking this because I'm upset with more prescriptions being added... I'm hoping other's opinions may help me clear my head.
