2) So sorry about the terrifying bus ride.

1) The instructor must think you're ready to take the test and thinks you will
do great. Wishing you all the luck in the world passing the test and gaining
more confidence.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

I took 30mg mirtazapine (Remeron) last night before bed.

One of the side effects of the medication is sleepiness, because it is a potent agonist of the histamine receptor...so aside from its antidepressive effect, it is also an antihistamine with “traditional” antihistamine effect...drowsiness.

Well, I didn’t fall asleep right away last night...likely because of my resumption of Dexedrine...and neither “drowsiness” nor “sleepiness” can even begin to describe it.

It was pure hell. I knew I wanted to sleep, but couldn’t - not right away, anyway - and it was like my brain was half-off, and I was heavy-limbed to the extreme. I couldn’t even get out of bed. It took herculean effort just to turn over.

I felt like one of those African savannah animals that had been shot with a tranquilizer dart on the old Mutual of Omaha show.

Then there was getting up. I was awake, but every part of my body was telling me to nestle in. I hit snooze a few too many times, and combined with how slow I was moving, I ended up being 20 minutes late for work.

I’m going to have to take it a little earlier in the evening so I am not so slug-like in the morning. Or perhaps the sedation effect will lessen with time…I hope so, at least.

So it is bothersome, but I am not complaining, really. I did choose this med, and wanted to try it as part of a two-prong attack on my depression along with bupropion (Wellbutrin). A bit of time will tell.

I’ve dragged booty before in my life, but this was a new level of sloth.

And for sure, the morning Dex helped a lot, but it was like the usual Dex feeling with a dash of I-want-my-pillow on top.


Cheers,
Ian
