Yes, we can, Tiddler!
How is it going for you so far?
And, which med are you on? Did you say? Or did I not catch that?
I am on day two of Metadate ER, 20 mg.
I took it late today, because I had a hard time getting myself to get up and at ’em.
Then I was worried about taking it with breakfast because I heard that eating can cause the stomach acid to stir up (which I know, I have chronic acid reflux) and that the stomach acid can make the Metadate not work….????
So then I waited.
And did some stuff, I don’t remember what.
Oh yeah, I brushed my teeth and talked to my mama on the phone and waxed my excessive facial hair.
Then I got a shower.
Then I finally took it.
Effects so far:
Maaaybe a little dry mouth, but not all that noticable or concerning. Some fatigue, which I struggle with usually, but noticed a little increase of it. A feel……emotional? sad? Emotional. But, then again, I’m entering the PMS phase of my cycle, so don’t know of the medicine is just making that more pronounced or what. Maybe starting a new med and PMS at around about the same time was a bad idea?
Also…..I feel more….talkative?
For example, I have done a fair number (more than usual) posts/responses here, and I’ve done a lot of posting on facebook.
Kind of stream-of-consciouness, humorous ADD-brain observations, motor mouth randomness type stuff…so…..
why would the Metadate be making that WORSE for goodness sakes?
or, more likely to share it?
When I get around groups of people, friends, I sometimes get….energized? and can be very talkative, funny, over-share.
But not it’s like that when I’m not around a group of people…I’m going out there and doing it on facebook when I’m sitting here alone in my room.
Makes me concerned that maybe there IS some bipolarity and that this Metadate is touching on my mental mania overly talkative aspect?
Lord, what to do! what to do!
I just want calm, thoughtful, serene brain so I can get my stuff done and write a poem!!!REPORT ABUSE
