Just a quick note to say hi! I switched from Seaquell & Zonisimide as night meds to Geodone & adivan.
It's way harder to fall asleep now.
When I get back to states I have my Pdoc appt. I'm also going to try melatonin.
Any ideas? She uses the Geodone as my antipsychotic. I tolerate it well, although it does cause hunger pangs. Thanks. Maxy
Good to see your presence again, I hope you are doing well in the snowstorm. Stay warm!
Hope you feel better soon!
Seems like you're the best person to ask regarding schizophrenia. My sister at the age of 43 has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. It's actually delusional paranoia schizophrenia, or so they say so far. This Friday I had to call the authorities to restrain her and bring her to the hospital. It was the hardest decision of my life. Her symptoms just kept getting worse and worse and it seemed like it was becoming a dangerous situation. I started to see less and less of my sister and more of this sickness. I try to go see her yesterday in the hospital and she refused my visit. It broke my heart. Will she ever be okay? Will she ever forgive me and understand that I did this for her well-being?
I keep forgetting my password lol.been hectic.t/y for the note_ Have a Great Upcoming Spring :)
Thank you for everything! Thank you for responding to my question I need to clarify I don't have schizophrenia my psyc dr prescribed abilify as an add on to an anti depressant I have been taking it approx ten years. Every time it try to come off of it I get the same problem my psyc D r just persuades me to go back on it. He has moved out of town and my GP has been prescribing my meds I have an appt. with him today to talk about this I am really anxious that he will take me seriously and help me because I do not want to take abilify again. I have printed off your reply and other info I found about this. I like your art work my hobby is oil painting mainly portraits.

Just a quick note to say hi! Hello, I have a young lady by the name of brittany808 who posted a question in the Womens Health Forum regarding schizophrenia (sorry if I spelled it wrong). I was wondering if you could help her. Her question is just entitled that - "question". It was posted 3 hours ago. Thanks :)
Thank you for commenting so well on my note about ginkgo biloba. I am taking on 120 mg. per day, as it seemed to accentuate my regular meds when I took 240 mg. How much do you take? How long have you been taking it? Has it made a marked improvement in akathisia as well as tardive dyskinesia? Thanks!
Getting out of a long funk....I am still on Quetiapine 600mg which I understood was an anti-psyc. pill, but a lot of what I have read describes it more as anti depressant?
Has there been a new form of this medication, without the weight gain - I have gained over 40lbs, which of course effects me in a negative way.
Be interested in any input you have.
Thank you for everything!
I can't find any supported housing - it's all either group home or assisted living around here. I spoke to a couple agencies but nothing was right for her. I really appreciate your comment. Thank you.
