Am I Over Medicated?
I have been diagnosed as manic depressive with anxiety. Im Currently taking Clonazepam .5mg twice a day,Seroquel 300mg twice a day,Seroquel 100mg at bedtime,Seroquel 25mg twice a day,Budeprion Sr 150mg twice a day,Effexor 75mg once a day,Effexor xr 150mg once a day,and finally Omeprazole DR 20mg twice a day. When I take my AM meds I have to sleep for an hour or two.
Only you and your physician can answer the question about whether you are "over-medicated." Different people need different amounts and different types of medications to effect treatment, so you should talk to your doctor about potential side effects you are having.
