I have been without any of my psychiatric medications for over two weeks now. I and my psychiatrist and my pharmacy and I assume my insurance company have tried at least three times. I don’t really know why I am letting you guys know this. Maybe it’s just so if you see or hear on the news about some middle-aged guy in Michigan going nuts You’ll be aware that it just could be me. I mean it probably won’t be me; There must be lots of middle-aged nuts in Michigan. But it might.

At least I’m still properly medicated for my below-the-neck problems.

There are 9 Replies

Yay, I’m medicated again!
I had two profiles. One (Thomas Chiarizio) was the one my Rxs got filled for; the other (Tom Chiarizio) was the one they looked up when I went to get them.

I’ll bet some of you were worrying for me! Thanks for worrying! (You can stop now!)

Yeah, I saw your post earlier, but I didn't respond.

Many healthy people don't know the red tape struggle around something as simple as getting a few antibiotic pills. I've been dealing with my local community health center for years. The fact that they're both bogged down by dozens of people a day and also are only mildly competent means that sometimes I have to wait days to even talk to someone about a problem.

I really should do some research on how our Healthcare system works and why it is the way it is.

I had to do a series of test that were going to be released on my medical portal through my provider. Everything was on there except my HIV results... I had to sign a form to release those results to my self.... But I could access equally personal information on my portal.

There is also the whole notion that no one group has a full detailed report of my medical history.

What Psych meds are you taking Besides Wellbutrin 300mg


I’m going to assume (pretend? guess?) that was addressed to me.
I’m on 15 Rxs —— 20 pills a day —— plus several “non-Rxs” that my doctors told me to take.
But only four are psychiatric.
100 mg sertraline (generic Zoloft) QAM (every morning)
150 mg bupropion (generic Wellbutrin) QAM (every morning)
500 mg divalproex (generic Depakote) BID (twice a day)
50 mg trazodone (generic Desyrel) QHS (at bedtime)

Sertraline and Bupropion are antidepressants and activators.
Sertraline can treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), social anxiety disorder, and panic disorder. (I don’t have PMDD; I do have depression; there’s a “maybe” about the rest of those).
Bupropion is used for SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and addiction. (I probably suffer from SAD. I’ve never been addicted. The first pshrink to prescribe me Buspar thought it would help with OCD.)
Trazodone is an antidepressant and sedative.
Divalproex is an anticonvulsant especially effective against petit mal seizures; but it’s also useful against bipolar disorder and migraines. (I’ve had some of the symptoms of petit mal; but they were diagnosed as age-related cerebral flatulence instead. I’ve never had migraines).

I think Jack-Jack is the most incredible Incredible!
Not sure everyone (else) is really crazy, so much as “differently sane” ;-)
Jack-Jack is protected by his naïveté, innocence, or what-you-may-call-it; questions of sanity or its opposite just don’t apply to him.
However, I think he came close to driving more than one of his care-takers to the limits of their sanity!

@Brandy:

I forgot to “alert” you in the last post (a reply to your post re Jack-jack.)
