So a long while ago I talked about seeing a psychiatrist for the first time. and getting anti-anxiety medication because I'm too wound up. So back in the summer (God it was summer so much stuff good and bad has happened since then) I went to the psychiatrist and got prescribed Buspar.

I took it at first, and I was definitely calmer, but it made me so sleepy. My morning dosage wasn't bad but my got home from work dosage would make me fall asleep for 1/2 hour-45 minutes. I'm not wasting precious post-work hours napping. That's Geekboy time, cuddling with the cats time, enjoying my life time. Taking it before bed didn't work, because I'd fall asleep for an hour or so and then be up half the night. Doctor told me taking it too late would affect my sleep.


I stopped taking it all together eventually. I just hate how I feel, it made me feel so out of it. But I was calmer, I wasn't getting upset over stupid shit, like not being able to find something the piece to the Keurig that lets you use K-cups. Geekboy takes Clonozapanem on as needed basis. I will take his clonazapanem when I'm stressing and it helps without the zombie feeling. How do I approach the psychiatrist? Can I just say "Hey I'm taking my boyfriends meds when I need it and it works much better than a daily prescription so can I have my own prescription." Basically I've just diagnosed myself through experimentation. Doctors are cool with that right?
