My Meds

What follows is a complete list of every medication and procedure I have ever been on/used.

  1. Citalopram (Celexa)
  2. Lamotrigine (Lamictal)
  3. Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (off and on)
  4. Fluoxetine (Prozac)
  5. Venlafaxine (Effexor ER)
  6. Peroxetine (Paxil)
  7. Olanzapine (Zyprexa)
  8. Lurasidone (Latuda)
  9. Lithium
  10. Valproate (Depakote)
  11. Aripiprazole (Abilify)
  12. Buspirone (Buspar)
  13. Hydroxyzine (Vistaril)
  14. Electroconvulsive Therapy
  15. Nortriptyline (Pamelor)
  16. Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal)
  17. Mirtazapine (Rameron)
  18. Bupropion (Wellbutrin)
  19. Trazodone (many)

I won’t go in depth talking about how all of these drugs affected me. Everyone responds to medicine differently, and I don’t want to give anyone a negative opinion of a drug just because it didn’t help me.

My current medicine is 1800 mg lithium, 300 mg lamotrigine, 80 mg Latuda, and 100 mg trazodone. I honestly don’t think they are working, so more drugs will probably follow.
