Updated After Inpatient Stay:
Abilify/aripiprazole: 2.5mg/day **due to CYP2D6 genotype**
Vistaril/hydroxyzine: 50mg/as needed for insomnia/anxiety
Lamictal/lamotrigine: 75mg/day **titrating to 200mg**
Klonopin/clonazepam: 1mg/as needed for anxiety/panic
**These will probably change after all of my discharge appointments within the next week. I am absolutely terrified of the weight gain associated with abilify so I am going to see if there is a better option. I am also worried that I am no longer on an antidepressant. I have had horrible insomnia so the vistaril may change, maybe to Ativan because that helped in the ER. The abilify is making me so dizzy and I assume that is what caused the Orthostatic Hypotension in the hospital. I assume that is because of my poor metabolism via CYP2D6, the primary CYP involved with abilify metabolism. Another post about that later.
