From this study (11 months ago):
From this study (2 years ago):
Don't handle busy, large crowds well at all. Unfamiliar social settings rapidly increase my anxiety level. When arguing with my spouse, or anyone else, I become highly anxious, sometimes to the point of outward fits of rage. When I feel myself going into a fit of rage, many times I cannot control myself. In my rage fits I always completely disregard my own safety regardless of the implied harm to myself others in my vicinity.
The muscle twitching is a pre-existing condition but seems to have increased frequency and intensity since beginning the new medications.
DMichelle on Aug, 3, 2012:
In the morning I take 40 mg. prozac (depression), 5 mg. TID buspar (for lack of orgasm due to prozac, Norco 20/650 Every 4 hours (I'm post spinal surgery), 300mg TID Neurontin (Helps with nerve pain post-op). In addition to those regular meds, I was prescribed a bunch of crazy drugs which don't say PRN, but I act as if they are because it seems like it's too much: I've take Klonapin for 4 years as needed for anxiety, I usually take it once per week. I was also Rx'd Diazapm, Baclofen, Dilauded, Colace, and proably a few more... The second group of drugs scare me because the Klonapin and Diazapam are in the same family, so I make sure I never take those on the same day. I can tell the pharmacist that until I'm blue in the face and they look at me like I'm F'ing crazy or a liar. Sorry, it's my body and I'm taking care of it, they act like I'm on a suicide mission. NO! The doctors in the hospital Rx'd me these... drill them about it now me! I have charts, spreadsheets, diagrams, calendars, you name it! I think what people have to do is be their own advocate. You know if you don't feel well - usually it's a prescription you are taking. Immediately talk to your doctor. Get back to the basics. That's what I am doing. When I do have to take a Baclefen or Diazapam, I prepare for a nap, not a drive to San Francisco. Be smart. You only have one body. Talk to MORE THAN one doctor. (female, 36 years old, lives in Norther California, healthy all my life besides obesity and I had WLS in 2007 - this back injury was an on the job injury) Thanks! Dana
