[More]s they make their way through the studies as they do not cause tardive dyskinesia, diabetes or extra pyramidal side effects and they are finding they are more effacacious. However, I already have severe forms of tardive dyskinesia, including tardive psychosis, tardive dysphrenia and tardive dysmentia which I am under standard clinical study for as a criteria. I also have atypical catatonia which may be a part of this spectrum. I am on several muscle relexants, Klonopin, Catapres and 3 natural remedies in clinical study for tardive, rhodiola, ginkgo and Piracetam but am seeking more effective treatments as although I've mentally recovered my tardive conditions severely limit my life and functioning although two newly identified treatment Vimpat and Lovaza have shown some promise as a first use in this regard. Every treatment I take is under strict psychiatric supervision. I volunteer doing benefits and other advocacy, including systems advocacy

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?
