the reduction of one of my medications…

A while back I posted that the PDoc wanted to reduce one of my medication in an effort to raise the threshold of my seizures. Well she told me if I found that my mood was declining that I should go back up to the dosage that I was at. Well today I did just that. My moods has been on a downhill slide to the point that I had to stop it or else. I told my wife of what was going on and she agreed that I needed to boost the medication back up.

Hopefully the medication will help soon. I’m at the stage that I just want to keep eating and that is not good nor is the other thing starting to run through my head. I mention that to my wife as well. She said that we can get through this, and that she would help.

One of the things that I don’t like is the lack of desire to visit my blogging friends, and the wanting to sleep all day again. To quote a line from a Betty Davis movie: “Fasten your seat belts this is going to be a bumpy ride” (which movie I can not remember that the line came from) I ask that you keep me in your prayers as I try to ride this out.

  4. I hate it when my life is controlled by a prescription. I had that 10 years ago with a pain medication. I became addicted to it and weaned myself off it, which is something I don't advise anyone to do. Now the only pain medication I take is one over the counter.

  5. Hope you are feeling better today Mike. I know medication changes can be so very difficult.Have a terrific day. Big hug. 🙂
