im on 6 different meds that are all resonably high doses, is that normal? im on 450 mgs of lithium twice a day, 200 mgs of zoloft, 2 mgs of tenex twice a day, 100 mgs of doxepin, 200 mgs of quanapine, and 15 mgs of buspirone twice a day. its just all confusing, stupid meds and stupid hospitalizations.

    Hey there @medfrk and welcome to the boards, I really hope you settle in well. :) I'm not exactly a medication expert but I know from personal experience that being on a high dosage is pretty common especially if you're tall or have a high BMI, though those aren't the only reasons. Have you spoken with your GP at all about your medication? If you're worried about it all they'd definitely have more knowledge on the subject than me. :lol:

    It sounds like you're a bit frustrated with how confusing it all can be and that's understandable, it can be a lot to remember especially if you're on so many different medications like you mentioned. It might be an option to ask someone close to you to help you organise everything, or at least make it easier for you to deal with.
