Medication Mess-Up


A few nights ago it was discovered that I’ve been accidentally O’D ing on my Anti-Depressant. (Wellbuterin).  I had originally been taking one tab of  150 mg a day, then when mom got super sick the doctor upped it to two 150 tabs a day but I asked him if he could make it just a one 300 tab to knock out at least one pill from my home pharmacy.  He did..However, at some point my mind must have flipped because I have been taking 2 300mg tabs of Wellbuterin for a while now.  That may very well be the reason why my brain spun out.  Or, at least a partial reason.

I saw a Psych per my P/C and the Psych said I am not Crazy (in the serious..legal? sense..we won’t go to any other) however he has diagnosed me as having ADHD.  If this is the case, it would explain why I’ve had such a hard time over the years with  keeping close friends and relationships.  The Psych also wants me to cut Caffeine out of my diet completely which may be a whole nother issue.  He seems to think it will help to decrease my headaches however I believe completely is way to much and a little Caffeine  can keep them at bay and perhaps even help me cut down on meds.  Hmm..this is a tough one and my husband will take the doctors side on this one.  He does not need/drink Soda or Caffeine to wake up and most doctors are Professionals and supposedly know what they are talking about…at least in Steves’ view.

  I am having a dispute with my OB though who is trying hard to get me back on drugs for Osteoporosis.  I’ve had bad effects with Fosamax, Actonel & Boniva and even my P/C said I could probably control it with diet and exercise which I’ve been doing.  I’ve agreed to a bone x-ray and to go from there.  Is there nothing these doctors would rather not give us drugs for?
