Hi I'm Aren. I'm supposedly grade 12 right now but I'm still grade 11 because I had to rest for a year due to my early stages of schizophrenia. Since last March 2016 I've been taking this serotia 300mg everyday and I felt unresponsive, groggy, confused and sleepy. I decided to stop taking them last May 2017 without letting my doctor know because my classes started at June 2017. Overall, I felt better without the meds. I even feel energetic and enthusiastic. At July 2017 during my last check up I had to admit my doctor that I had not took my meds due to certain voices I'm hearing during my sleep. He insisted that I should take the meds again to avoid relapse. Now my preliminary exams start next week, I can't memorize. I can't understand what I have read in my notes. I did not even know what I have written there in the first place. I feel worried and depressed thinking I would fail. Should I discontinue the taking of my meds so that I can concentrate even better?
