Was the personality disorder your only diagnosis? What medications have you been on?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I first had the label bi polor for meny years... Then new dr says personality disorder. I have tried wellbutrin seriquil ambilify zoloft... All but wellbutrine knocked me out. I'm a single mom of four kids and just want too be some what happy again... As I sit here crying.. I'm just feeling so drained I wanna just lay around DEPRESSED I guess..
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
So your major problem is depression?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yaa I guess... I'm draggy, sad, tired all the time, sad and very irritable... Seems like life is miserable and no way out no matter what
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
So are you still on the Wellbutrin?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
nope not taking anything... i hate taking meds but this needs too end. maybe there is no way out but too dose up on anti depressants and mood stabalizers. i go too DBT once a week too but dont find that real helpful. I got a new script for wellbutrin guess maybe i should start and might get off my butt and stop wanting too killmyself
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
im dizzy all the time and ringing in my ears .... dr says vertigo and nothing i can do... i often wonder if there is more too that .... which might explain my moods.... but i get sluft off...
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Good point there--have you been tested to see if there's a physical cause for your problem?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
he gave me full blood work up and said all was fine... said marions disease (spelling) something like that... nothing he can do and thats that. but truley i cant go threw a day with out the walls feeling like they are moving and being light headed. so find it hard too go about my daily activities and i wonder why im depressed but hey its ok shes got BPD theres nothing really we can do. lost hope really at the moment..
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
I understand. So was your question if there's something nonprescription that might help?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes... Because everything they give me either knocks me out or makes me a zombie.. I just wanna be able too cope better and lesson the tension.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK--I suggest you try St. John's Wort, SAMe (methionine), Omega 3, and saffron along with melatonin or valerian for sleep.
