Levomepromazine, (methotrimeprazine), opinions?

SophieBernstein

Confident
I have a prescription for 25mg of levomepromazine for anxiety and insomnia, but I've found people on the internet who use only 7.5mg and become drowsy throughout the day.

I've previously experienced this issue with mirtazapine at just 15mg, and I'm feeling anxious about it now.

I don't have psychosis; it's only for anxiety. However, I'm worried because it might affect my dissociation and my recently diagnosed ADHD. I have to drive daily also.
Has anyone had any experience with this?
Thank you all.
 
I suggedted him about alprazolam (xanax) or ativan (lorazepam) but he told me that I had tolerance to them.
I'm so worried because I really have anxiety and I tried natural remedies but nothing seems to work.
 
The upside about ADHD, is that whilst other meds (antidepressants, antipsychotics, and mood stabilizers) tend to have the opposite effect? Antianxiety meds tend to work better than advertised.

I had a Xanax Rx where 30 pills lasted me a decade, because? I could almost LICK the suckers, and be asleep for 25 hours. Dead serious. Lick and be asleep for 10. Scrape with my tooth, and get a days worth of sleep. Valium, otoh, I was just “me”. An accidental vitH (haldol) shot (we were attempting to restrain a psychotic and violent patient and I got the shot meant for them) did literally… nothing.

ADHD means quirky med responses. Just does. But anything that is in/out of your system within 24hrs, instead of needing to be built up/tapered off of? Is worth a go.

I surely give it a try but I scared because I usualy have realy bad side effects.

Same token.

My SPECTAUCLARLY funny/terrible story to date? A muscle relaxant whilst suffering a panic attack.

It was like being a jellyfish attached to a live wire. For 8 hours.

But GOOD meds? Are like magic.

Magic? Is worth the occasionally reeeeeally funny story. In retrospect.

I have already took them and now I know how make me feel. Today, I woke up feeling terrible. I got up at 9, but I had to go back to bed because I felt like I was falling to the sides, and my whole body felt heavy. Two hours later, I got up again and had low blood pressure with a fast heart rate, heaviness in my body, and dizziness. I'm feeling better now, but my body feels sore. A total failure, although I haven't had anxiety for now.
 
Typically there are side effects with these sorts of drugs that will very often taper off after a couple of weeks.
I honestly prefer having anxiety, I have to drive, go to the university and also I do kick boxing and archery, things that makes me feel better. Furthermore, I already have problems with my heart rate because it's too fast but with this I had 161 bpm, terrible.
I will suggest him xanax again.
Thanks for the advise!
