Has amisulpride alone allowed anyone to- get a job hold a job get a career developed? Any potential for this drug to do this? Does it create a hypomania of some sort (which I guess could be a bad thing but it would allow you to work…)
I am just tired of having to mitigate my negative symtoms with exercise and still by the end of the day an unable to work and have to start all over tomorrow
I was on 800mg, and they had moved me up to 1.2g, so the pdoc wanted an ECG. I had to do a repeat one, then he told me I had to come off the Amisulpride. His plan to mix two APs was not going to work out as he said my heart wouldn’t be able to tolerate it
That’s why we have tried so many meds since, rather than adding a second one
I don’t think any single medication can help you get a job or help with career development. APs the major part of stability but the only build a foundation from which you can work from. If you looking to make gains in terms of having a functional work outcome then you need to replicate and practice the skill you are trying to improve. Namely this would be psychosocial intervention, job relevant training and or volunteering ect.
Amisulpride has been a good med for me. I used to take it alone but now I’m taking it with haloperidol and a mood stabiliser and AD . I take 500mg . It helps with negative symptoms but not completely. I swing into avolitions quite often due to stress and sometimes just because .
I’m wondering if this would work. If for instance your brain and thinking is just completely shut off (negative symtoms) would this activate it. For me even a small amount of exercise has always opened up my mind. Then meds would work otherwise they seem they wouldn’t work.
