My mornings are the hardest as well. Anxiety levels through the roof. Getting my day going is by far my biggest challenge. Once into my day - I can absolutely cope with it. I believe mine is major anxiety based

Everyone else is also dealing with this, yes. Don’t feel alone!

Gabapentin does well to calm nerves I think. I’m not as susceptible to side effects of meds (at least none that I’ve listed or tried) and try to take the gaba instead of the Ativan when I can.

I did just up my dose of lamo to 75 mgs today

In Topic: I don't even know if I have DP or I googled myself into it.

I’m convinced that with an underlying anxiety disorder (hypochondria as an example) - one can absolutely “google” your way into anything.

Power of persuasion.

But alas.... the beauty is you can also think your way out....

And if thst doesn’t work, try remeron/mirtazapine . I recovered after 4 days of using it . 15 mg


Really? I’m week 3 on Lamo (50 mg) and was going to bump up to 75 mg tomorrow.... also taking 50 mg sertraline, 600mg Gabapentin, .5 mg Ativan, 100 mg Naltrexone and 50 mg seroquel (if I can’t sleep)

And before anyone decides to say “wow that’s a lot” /

Besides battling anxiety and Dp.... I’m also 73 days clean from a 7 year oxy habit... so I really asked my docs for tools to battle both (early recovery sucks) and the dp/anxiety

If it was up to me.... the sertraline, lamo and gabapentin would be fine

I also have very low testosterone and have a meeting with urology this upcoming week

I am also getting eeg results back on Thursday


What is remeron and mirtazapine? - no google because I’m interested in your recovery
