I've been on 0.375 mg/day of Fluanxol (down from 0.5 mg/day) for a few days now. There has been a marked deterioration in my mood and functioning. Amazing that such a small dose change can have so great an effect. Last night I only went to bed at 03:00 AM; back to my bad old habits. My sleep routine had become so healthy these last few weeks: I generally went to bed well before midnight each evening. I also felt very negative and sulky yesterday evening, and today, when I felt stressed, I gave in to a bad nervous habit of biting my fingers.

Fluanxol is amazingly strong stuff. I can't imagine what it must be like to use doses like 6 mg/day.

I'll persist for a few more days on 0.375 mg/day however, but I'm wondering which is the greater evil: mild brain shrinkage or negative mood and poor functioning.
