Dr. Kaushik :

Customer:

Yed

Customer:

Yes

Dr. Kaushik :

i will like to get your remeron replaced with a drug either zyprexa or abilify.

Dr. Kaushik :

abilify does not cause weight gain usually.

Customer:

Why?

Dr. Kaushik :

because i feel you are no longer responding to remeron and it is doing more harm than good.

Dr. Kaushik :

so it shall be replaced so as to bring you out of the fugue.

Dr. Kaushik :

abilify is the drug which can be used to replace it.

Dr. Kaushik :

if you do not want to replace remeron then at least reduce the dose to 15 mg

Customer:

What is that?

Customer:

Ok I will

Dr. Kaushik :

it is basically a newer generation anti psychotic drug which at low dose is effectively used for treating anxiety, depression , dissociation, fugue.

Customer:

I feel am scared to remember or think

Dr. Kaushik :

and abilify does not cause weight gain.

Dr. Kaushik :

you shall stay on a low dose of 10 mg / day

Dr. Kaushik :

and may in fact continue on remeron 15 mg if you do not want to discontinue it

Dr. Kaushik :

so the revised regime will be

Customer:

I see

Dr. Kaushik :

zoloft 200 mg . clonazepam 0.5 mg twice , remeron 15 mg once at night , and abilify 10 mg in the morning

Dr. Kaushik :

it may take 2-3 weeks for you to see the improvement in your dissociation and fugue after starting on abilify.

Customer:

I sew

Customer:

Dr. Kaushik :

You see it has been long time that you have been fluctuating in your symptoms.
