I am taking Viibryd 40 mg antidepressant. Vitareal 50mg 3 times a day and 2 at bedtime. Remrol 1 at bedtime, and Lithium 1 300 mg morning and 1 300 at night (total of 600mg). I have NEVER had such a good combination. I am happy and relaxed and easy goin' and I want to be around people. Also I am energized and focused. I was slowly dieing, worried constantly, was very sad mostly, angry, hopeless, couldnt make eye contact. Couldnt be around people, was crawling out of my own skin, I just did NOT want to live but didnt want to kill myself either so I felt stuck and then the suicidal thoughts took hold. Everything started being "a way to go". Especially a train Id hear often from the tracks across the road. I had heard it as always but a thought came like an easy normal thought, "that would be a way". I had already demanded a gun be removed when I found out it was in the home but I couldnt remove a train, So I went away. I went into a stabilization unit and when they added the lythium and the remrol to what I was already on which I listed, I bloomed. I now feel alive and full of hope, energy, and laughter. I want to be around others again and I want to live. I have had the combo for 5 days now and already feel this much better. I know everyone is different with medications but all my years of dealing since 12 years old till now at 31 I had never had medicine have such a positive effect. I thought I was hopeless. I wasnt. Theres always hope.View Thread
