I was on seroquel lamictal and depakote awhile ago. It made life pretty boring. But then I went off the meds and everything was just dandy, until I started doing risky things without thinking about what I was doing (very bipolar behavior), leading up to and including (on the pretense of it being a certain american holiday) building a pipe bomb and accidentally setting it off in my face.
Don't listen to these people that say drop meds etc, if you need them you need them, that is, if you cannot live a normal lifestyle without them. If you decide the combination isn't working for you, you should cut back slowly. I didn't choose to do this, this might not have had to do with my mistake, but being bipolar certainly made me more susceptible to my lapse in reason.
Oh yeah and now, the only drugs I take are recreational. I'm still bipolar but would rather challenge myself with functioning in the world without dumbing down my head. Though sometimes in my infrequent but severe lows the thought crosses my mind to go back on meds, but I haven't yet... HTH
Agreed. I always feel safer tripping because I can easily crush 300mg and end the trip. But other than that, I'm trying to get off Seroquel...but save a nice supply for trips BTW -- to date I have never had to abort a trip.
Maybe I have other sources that "the internet". And btw, there are sources on the internet which sustain that meds are bad, as well as other which sustain that meds are good. What I pick from all the sources containing all the contradictory information are passed through the filter of reason. Also most people who stay on meds for a prolongued period of time and then quit, come back to the ways they felt or even worse. One more reason to think that they are not exactly good. Another thing which confirmed me that meds are BS was when I realized that each of us have the ability to change the way we perceive life. I had enormous moments of depression and and anxiety of different sorts and the only one who could get me out of there was my own determination by deciding to face my problems, accept them and then resolve them. With reason and understanding.
