I’m on Invega Sustenna, Lithium and Lamictal.
I used to be on Depakote and Lexapro but I didn’t find them to be that effective.

I am only on Lithium and Quetiapine XR at the moment. But I also take Quetiapine IR and Atarax that my pdoc doesn't know of.

I've also tried Cipralex, Cipramil, Venlafaxin, Lamictal, Abilify, Brintellix, Voxra, Risperidon and probably some more than I cannot remember. Nothing works. They keep feeding me pills but I am medicine resistant. I've got ECT around 30 times. Sometimes it helps.

Duloxitine
Mirtazipine
Lorazepam
Propanalol
Temazepam.
Was also on quetiapine but have stopped that now. Over the years ive been on all sorts but this combination seems to work. Its a case of trial and error till they find the combination that suits you.

Gabapentin (600mg, 3x a day). I'm also tapering off duloxetine (90mg daily) in place of clomipramine, since clomipramine specifically aids with OCD. Not sure what my final dose on that will be yet.

I aim to be discharged from my meds.

Unfortunately i find it difficult to distinguish which meds have helped and which have not therefore i cannot offer much knowledge.

I'm currently taking the following medications the generic names are in purple and the brand names are in black.The brand name Adderall is a lot easier to remember than the generic name of amphetamine/dextroamphetamine XR.
  • amphetamine/dextroamphetamine XR =Adderall XR
  • Duloxetine=Cymbalta
  • Lamotrigine=Lamictal
  • Clonazepam=Klonopin
  • Doxepin
Medications that I have found to be effective that I'm no longer taking that I can remember.
  • Trazodone Best sleep ever :sleepy2:
  • Quetiapine=Seroquel
  • Aripiprazole=Abilify
  • Propranolol

Make sure you have a psychiatrist help you, withdrawal symptoms can be unpleasant all the way to deadly.
