The Cipralex Adventure

I think that the cipralex might actually be working a bit. i feel a bit "lighter" about life, a bit more even keeled, a bit more normal. Not close to normal but a bit more normal. I am currently taking 10 mg, and think that under the advise of my doctor, I am going to up it too 15mg and see. I will then maybe up it too 20 mg if I need to. Two side effects that I have had so far are: nausea in the mornings and also some sleep issues - tired at weird times and a bit of trouble falling asleep. i changed from taking it in the morning to taking it at night in hopes that the sleep stuff tries to figure itself out. The nausea is apparently going to go away too. I haven't had any in a while and want to give it a few more days before I try uping the amount.

It's interesting taking the Topamax at the same time, because I am not sure about the side effects and what is causing what. Right now I am blaming the concentration stuff on the Topamax and some of the sleep stuff. I think that all of of it will even out soon enough. I am currently on 25 mg of the Topamax for another week then I up it to 50 mg for two weeks, then 75 mg for two weeks, then 100 mg for ever. Hopefully it will all work out.
