> What I find, when I take anti-psychotics, is that I grow farther away from who I really want to be. It has got to the point where I miss my old self. For instance, Risperdal made me a zombie on the lowest dose. Paxil was ok, until I realized I did not need it. Zyprexa, which I am on now, has been the worst. I felt this twitch, this need for nervous habits. So I tried cogentin in conjunction. It did nothing. The only solution was to cut back on all the pills. I currently take desyrel (trazodone) 100 mg, vistaril (hydroxy pamoate) 25 mg, cogentin (benztropine mesylate) 2 mg, and zyprexa (no generic) 15 mg.
> Early on I was taking a much higher dose of desyrel and vistaril. But now, I have managed to cut back to half a pill of each a day (the vistaril has to be taken out of the capsule and the powder must be divvied in half). It took about 3 months to cut down on all these pills.
> I now can just about sleep without taking the medication. It used to be that I could not sleep without the medication.
> I guess, to put it in a nutshell, if you feel more at peace - cut back on the medication and see if you can deal without it. I feel that the only reason I have taken this pharmaceutical crap, is to sleep.
> The best life is earned naturally, not with all of this garbage that scientists make. These people make drugs and then they make guesses on what it does to the mind. "There is no absolute projection of what physically happens to the brain when someone takes medication." They only formulate guesses on neurotransmitters and how they work with the medication in your system.
> I have wasted 7 years of my life by relying on what "experts" say. So, if you have self-control, eat healthy, and take vitamins that help the mind, see a counselor. Consider not damaging your brain cells with hyperbolic, idiot conceived, landfill debris.
> I am open for debate.
> > > You described my feelings about Zyprexa exacty. But my experiences with A.D.s I believe are more on the positive side.
