Hello everyone. I was just wanting to see if anyone is on similiar medications as I am.

I take Celexa 40mg, Remeron 30mg, Wellbutrin 300mg, Trazodone 200mg, Geodon160mg, Buspar 60mg, Vistaril 150mg, and Cogentin 2mg, Depakote 1500mg.

I just got put on Depakote a month ago and it now caused me to have shaking hands and trembling. My doc just added Cogentin today.

Anyone on these meds?

The combo was working great for me for about six months. My Pd added Dipakote to it and made me shake with trembles. So the doctor just added Cogentin to stop the shakes. I've been on Depakote for a month now. I just started the Cogentin last night.. The other medications have been working great for a year now. I do notice with the Depalote that I am in a normal mood. I was just if there was anyone out there taking as much as me.

Well, I take 10 meds (includes PRN's and Lovaza, ie fish oil). I think it is important to not fixate on the number. The real question is are you better, do the meds cover your symptoms. Then ask yourself if every med is needed.

I take: Celexa, Remeron, Abilify, carbamazepine (Tegretol), Ritalin, and Lamictal. Also atenolol prn. I find the Celexa + Remeron combo particularly helpful.

I was taking Wellbutrin before it got switched to Celexa. Several years ago I took Wellbutrin, Celexa, and Remeron together. My current pdoc doesn't want me on 3 AD's.

I started out on Celexa and Remeron but my list kept growing everytime I talked to my pdoc. I do agree that that is a wonderful Combo.

I've been on Remeron, Wellbutrin, Trazadone, Geodon, Vistaril and Depakote. Is the med combo working for you?

I think it is a good combo. It was working for me but I had other situations(bipolar). I did still crash on the combo but usually not long. He added Depakote to chill me out because I was flopping mania then depression same day. Go to bed hyper as heck. Wake up dead and not having the motivation to move.

I was having mixed states so he put me on the Depakote. Started staying depressed for long periods and mania so bad I couldn't lay down at night. I'm glad to find I am not alone. So you have been on more than 9 medications before, cool.

Hey, we're semi-med buddies. I'm on traz and depakote. I've been, at one point or another, on all your other meds too (except vistaril and cogentin). Haven't had problems with tremor (yet) thankfully, but cogentin works fabulously on that I've heard. I'm glad to read you're benefiting from your meds! I know it can be disconcerting (understatement) to take handfuls of pills every day, but when it works, it works.



I was having mixed states so he put me on the Depakote.


Mixed states are what brought me to Depakote, too. It's been a literal lifesaver for me, along with Zyprexa.
