|BIPOLAR, DEPRESSION and SUICIDE
May 25, 2011
I am on Truvada,and Isentress for my HIV. I am undectable and CD4=467. I am on a HBP med (metoprolol tartrate), Diazepam (Meinere's-vertigo) which helps keep me upright. I tried to commit suicide April 2, 2011. Unfortuately, my partner and friend found me to soon. I am on Zoloft 150mg, Amblify 5mg and Cyproheptadine 4mg, for about a month. I have body aches,loss of concentration, nightmares, mood swings. I am seeing a therapist and a psychiatrist. We are stuggling to find the right meds. My question- Which bipolor and antidepressants would I have best results with minimal side effects? Your answer is very much appreciated
Response from Dr. Henry
As I tell many of my patients, I am an amateur psychiatrist so I cannot provide quality advice about treatment for severe depression in a forum like this due to the need for individual assessment and close follow-up (often seems to take some time and efforts of a mental health team to find what works for a given person).
