I saw my psychiatrist today and told him my story about the shaking and anxiety symptoms and that I stopped everything.
“Those symptoms are not from anxiety. You have blah-blah-blah-blah”. Some long word that meant I was having a reaction from the Abilify.
And as Drs do, he started me on a medication to stop the shaking. I had a good day yesterday and thought the shaking was going to be better but today it was worse. It should go away, but for now there is some relief.
“You really should have called me when this started. I would have stopped the Abilify but I want you to stay on the Cymbalta. You say you aren’t depressed but that is not what I see from my perspective.”
So back I go on an anti-depressant. I’m not sure if I want to go on this medication again. It made me a zombie, stopped my poetry writing and gave me another symptom I am very unhappy over. But if one decides to go to the Dr. and then ignores their advice, one is just plain stupid. So I shall give it another try, it is a medication for fibromyalgia pain, and Lord knows I can use some relief.
