I’m currently on:
Prozac (fluoxetine) 20 mg
This is Thailand Prozac coz I ran out of Prozac while in Bangkok and
had to get my gf to go to a drugstore (chemist/pharmacy) to get it for
me at Siam Square. It cost 1100 baht (about RM 110) for a single
blister pack of 20 mg Prozac so its more expensive than Malaysia.
I take from 2 to 7 capsules every morning (about 40 mg to 120 mg)
with an average of 5 capsules (100 mg) for my depression. I know, it’s
bad to self-medicate but I’ve been on it for months now and it’s doing
Remeron SolTab (mirtazepine) 15 mg
Remeron SolTab is the new orodispersible (meaning it dissolves in
your mouth) version of mirtazepine, another antidepressant which I take
Remeron helps me sleep as well, so I can lower down my nightly dose of benzodiazepines for my insomnia/anxiety.
I take one tablet at night with my antipsychotic medication
(Risperdal) before I go to sleep. It’s supposed to help with my
Rivotril (clonazepam) 2 mg
Rivotril is the only benzodiazepine that I’m taking now – I’m on a
taper plan for this too. I take 2 x 2 mg (4 mg of clonazepam) at night
for my benzo dependency and I’m trying to get it down to 2 mg within
Risperdal (risperidone) 2 mg
Risperdal is an antipsychotic used to treat schizophrenia. My
psychiatrist says that I have unusual thoughts and my gf reckons that
it’s used to treat my manic phases.
I take one and half tablets every night with my Remeron for 3 mg of
Risperdal daily. Risperdal has a nasty side effect that I noticed – it
is very difficult to orgasm when steady state plasma concentrations
have been reached.
What medication(s) are you on?
