and I think his symptoms are creeping back. Last night he was VERY reactive to minor things and became very argumentative, defensive, and LOUD over something very innocent and trivial. Tonight, he is moody for the first time in a loooooong time, and when I ask if he's okay, he mumbles something about being bored and starts complaining about sex again (this was his big Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)-type thing in the past). So I guess I just need to continue keeping my eyes open and try not to get sucked into his moods. It's hard not to do, but if I remember that this is his "illness" I think I'll be better able to cope this time. I take the boys to see the psychiatrist (same one husband just saw) on Monday, so perhaps when they're out of the room I can give him an off-the-record update... and encourage husband to call just to check in next week. He cut his Paxil dose by 1/4 last Monday per the psychiatrist. He'll go down another 1/4 this Monday, continuing for a week, then another, and so on until he's done. Then he's supposed to start adding Trileptal. Once he gets to the target dose of Trileptal the neuro said he could start backing off the Lamictal. I have a feeling that his mood issues are going to become something to reckon with before he even gets to that point. Sigh. This is probably the beginning of a bumpy ride for a while. Please pray that he still has enough self awareness to see what's happening in himself. Thanks!
