    You may be able to reduce that list when things stabilize a bit, LostChild.

    FYI, this is what they are for:

    Effexor and Wellbutrin - to help with depression and anxiety
    Lamictal (lamotrigine) - a mood stabilizer
    Seroquel - probably to help with sleep although it will also help to control depression, anxiety, and mood swings
    Lorazapam - for anxiety and will help with sleep

    Well since I can't make a new post at the moment Ill just add it to this one. I was reading about seroquel and it said that it will make you gain weight, eek. But I sure enjoy sleeping at night. Just thought I would share that with ya all.

    When you read things about any medication bear in mind that just because something is listed as a side effect doesn't mean that YOU will experience that side-effect. Not everyone taking Seroquel gains weight.

    See my article here: Making Sense of Medication Side-Effects.
