Поиск лекарств

Фармацевты в нашей стране одни из самых продвинутых ребят. У них у всех есть единая система, объединяющая абсолютно все аптеки, в которой можно посмотреть наличие любого препарата и его цену.

Как это работает.

И на айфоне и на андроиде есть приложение “Поиск лекарств”. Заходишь, вбиваешь название и опля: все возможные цены на него. Можно сортировать по удаленности и по возрастанию цены.

Это супер актуальная вещь. Цена одного и того же лекарства может в 1.5 – 2 раза различаться по городу.

My expenses Dec,3 2016 – Dec,3 2017

Last year I started to check all my expenses on the special application in iPhone.

Here we go. All my expenses for a year. 1 dollar = around 60 roubles.

I inscribe here everything at all. Even if I just bought pack of napkins for 5 roubles.

I spent 202 thousands for renting my apartment in Novosibirsk. I was paying 17,500 until July then moved to another apartment for 2 month. I was paying 17,000 there and lived only 2 months. Then I moved to apartment of friend of my friend and now I pay 15,000.

108 thousands I spent for food. It doesn’t include snacks, fast-food and restaurants. Only food from grocery stores.

I gave 91 thousands to my friends and relatives. It includes presents and just money I sent or gave them.

66 thousands I spent for alcohol))

39 thousands for cafe and restaurants

Transport (24 grounds) includes public transport, bus tickets (one trip to mountains nearby) and flights (one trip to Moscow).

Entertainments (23,299) – are  movies, theatres, water park, trampolines, purchasing a bike and so on.

Quite a lot of money I’ve spent for coffee because I love it.

22 thousands I paid to my psychiatrist and did one operation of removing lipomas on my arm.

I spent 19,777 for brintellix, depakine, vitamins and other medicines.

14, 177 for new clothes and hairdresser.

12 grounds for fitness club and swimming pool.

5.7 thousands for cellphone and internet. It’s cheap here.

Utility bills are only 2.4 thousands. But It’s quite new category. About half of the year I inscribe all these expenses to “Rent apartment” category. Anyways, utility bills are extremely cheap here in Russia. This category includes payments for water and electricity.

Altogether I spent 718 679 roubles. This is 60 thousands a month. 1 000$ a month.


Returned to normal

Nine days ago I was writing a post about hypomania, I felt that it’s comming. After that I was taking 5-7 pills of Valproate each days and was feeling myself strangely.

After some days my hypomania simptomes disappeared and I was feeling depressed simptomes for some days. I was even taking Brintellix two times. I decided to see my psychiatrist.

Today she said that It was complete hypomania episode. And I was acting quite right. The mistake was only that I reduced and increased the dose of mecine too fast. If I want to increase or reduce the dose I should do it for only 1 pill during 2 days.

And also we compiled a plan:

there we go



It’s hypomania again. Taking Valproate makes me feel differently then I felt before.

As my psychoatrist said I have to take around 5-7 pills each hypomania day. I started with 7 and was sleeping a lot during these first days. I reduced the dose today cause I feel it’s too many.

For me it’s the first year I control my cycles, this is new experience for me. Interesting actually. You can choose how you wanna feel your unquiet mind today.

Taking Brintellix. Second week

Being going on taking antidepressant Brintellix for two weeks already. I decided to write this part in English cause it’s quite boring to read continuing posts about my medicines. Just in order to add some variety to this narrative.

So, Last time I wrote that my doctor said me to take that Brintellix for a week and a week after to visit her again to chech my condition. Last Friday she extended it for one more month. I had thought that I start taking antipsychotic Depakin when I visited her. I even nad bought it, actually. But the doctor said I gotta wait for another week. Im gonna start taking it tomorrow. One pill before sleep every day for 4 days, then two pills for 4 days then taking three pills each day.

Next visit to the doctor on February, 22.

About my condition: it feels better. I wrote last time that Brintellix helps me feeling good, but yesterday for instance I was in the restaurant where I ate too much meat for dinner. I felt badly whole night and today my head was slightly in pain all day. I concluded that depressive symptoms increased when you got another problem with your health. And it’s better to be healthy during this time.
