Med Review

Yesterday I had two appointments. One was for a CT scan to recheck my heart. Nothing serious (I hope).. just a followup kind of thing. The other appointment was for a med review with my psychiatrist. That one went well.

Anyone who has followed this old blog of mine knows the struggles I've had with my medications. I've been switched around so many times. No combination seemed to work. You name it and I've probably tried it. Possibly even acetyl l carnitine.

I'm happy to say that this doctor seems to have found the right mix. I'm down to only three psyche meds when not too long ago I was taking five, not to mention my 'regular' meds. No changes were made this time. None! Instead of seeing him again in 2 months, my next appointment is in three months.

Oh, sure I still have my ups and downs. I imagine I will continue to do so. I still have anxiety and panic issues. I imagine I will continue to do so. But the swings aren't anywhere near as bad as they used to be. The anxiety and panic don't come as frequently. I can almost function like a normal person does. =)
