Hi Jane,
It was me who suggested the music; basically because I have been on every antipsychotic made- both atypical and typical, oral and depot injections. The side effects including EPS were what led me to try other methods and I found this helpful which is why I suggested it (and no it is not like earplugs, in a sense it causes me to pay more attention to the music then the very negative comments I sometimes hear). While I do self-medicate I also see a psychiatrist and psychologist. I am also pregnant which complicates matters a great deal. I have a doctorate in Immunology but am on disability and have been so for almost 4 years. I find much of my time (aside from caring for my family) researching medications in various trial phases- thanks to former co-workers- and educating myself on different therapies. My shrink and therapist have been very supportive but I did go through 15 psychiatrists before I found one willing to work with me. I hope some of this helps- Judy
