I started seeing a therapist about these shakes and emotions. Have gone 3 times and it feels good on the days I see her but I still have 6 days she's not here. My family dr gave me a script for Buspar, it's to help with the anxiety cause I would like to stop taking xanax. The xanax doesn't last as long in my body, I take 3-4mgs a day. I try to fight it and sometimes I can but not always. I have to take a xanax at bedtime with my Elavil to sleep, tried with out xanax and couldn't sleep. Guess I need that relaxation from the xanax. I feel like a drug addict. I take 400mg of Gleevec, zofran my nausea pill, 1mg of xanax 3-4 times a day and 60mgs of Elavil to control migraines at bedtime. Now she wants me to try Buspar for during the day. I am afraid to try anything any more with out asking my onc. I have put that much trust in him. My family dr says it won't interact with any thing I take but I am hesitant. She is also checking to see if maybe I got some menopause going on. I am 53. Does any one have any advice or tips on this Buspar?
I have gained all my weight back and more but I now have decided I am going to continue to try to do everything I want to do with out the side effects stopping me. I am tired of it all and I am going to get stubborn now and get to moving as much as I can!!!!! Might need to rest the next day when I do things that require alot of walking but I am still going to do it. I went to New York on a bus trip a couple weeks ago and rode subway most of the time but was very sore next day. Me and my daughter in law took oldest grand daughter sight seeing. But the gleevec really does effect my legs, why that part of my body? Going to Hershey, PA on July 10 to see Kid Rock/Sheryl Crow concert thanks to my kids for front row seats. Then the week after that it is 'beach here I come" for a week. So ready this year!!!!!
So it's time to get down to business even if I have to take pills I don't like to be able to go places and do things!!!!!! Either that or take up drinking!!!!!!
Thanks to you guys, the new Dee
