The doctor seems to think I have serotonin sickness. This is nothing new. According to the National Institute of Health, “Serotonin syndrome is a potentially life threatening drug reaction that causes the body to have too much serotonin, a chemical produced by nerve cells.” I take Zoloft and she seems to think that is it. It also might be Lithium Toxicity. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0003241/) So she’s cutting the Lithium a little.
Just for the record, overdoing it on these drugs is not fun. It doesn’t drive you mania, it drives you to serious flu-like symptoms. Basically you get driven up the wall and everything that was stable or good about your health is gone.
I hate this. I am a lab rat being experimented on by my psychiatrist and my husband. I feel miserable, and don’t want to eat anything. I have nausea, diarrhea, drowsiness, and a terrible memory. I can’t remember or concentrate on anything. I am lost. I also still don’t have a new client. That means I don’t have any income.
