Monthly update

I'm still increasing my Seroquel dose. My doctor would like to see it level off by 600 mg/night, but is willing to go up. I'm currently at 400 mg. I need to increase that, probably tomorrow. I'm off imipramine totally.

I added OTC Xantc due to heartburn from the Seroquel and am taking a few days worth of hydrochlorothiazide, a diuretic, to try to get my legs back down to human size. They are not that big in relation to a few years ago, but they are uncomfortable. Even my arms have enough fluid in them pushing down causes a dent. This is important because as long as I'm this swollen I'm at risk for hypertension. I really don't wnat to take meds for that again.

So hopefully that's all the major stuff for a while.

Slight Change

It feels like everything in the world has changed, but really I just keep increasing the dose of the Seroquel. 250 mgs and counting.

Also, I no longer take imipramine. I'm not sure how I feel about that because I was sort of psychologically dependent on it (it worked! For a long time!) but the time had come to not risk it causing mania.

Otherwise, see the last entry.
