Well I don't know which med is making me a zombie, but Im guessing it is the anti-psychotic (Invega). My doc said it would not make me that way, but I slept for 14 hours last night and the day before. Also falling asleep at work..

Needless to say, I didn't take my meds this morning.. I was instructed to take them in the morning, but I'm gonna take them at night and see if I can stay awake during the day. I was going to take the Prestiq (anti-depressant) this morning to see if it made me sleepy but I forgot.

I was actually feeling more depressed yesterday and today. I'm guessing it is because I'm switching meds. I just wonder why she didn't bump up my Prozac instead of switching, but my two new meds are time released. I guess my symptoms were so bad, she wanted to load me up on all this stuff.

I don't mind being on meds as long as they work and don't have bad side effects. Of course I won't be able to tell for a few weeks if this combonation works or not. I had some crazy dreams though ha ha!!

I'll keep u guys posted on how these meds work for me.. :drool:

I remember I once took Zyprexa in the morning, no joke, I must have slept 24 hours. So good idea Star!
