I have a neutral attitude towards my Clopixol ap med. I see it as being similar to my blood pressure med, it’s just there and there’s no need to have any emotion towards it. I don’t feel any stigma towards it what so ever.

Yess,I wrote something two years ago,it was called Role of cytokines on sz outcome.
Some drugs raise IL6 (interleukin) in sz patients…
Im to lazy to search it again,but we have raise of immune response with meds we use.
What it means,cells that are up because of our meds,produce boost immune factor.
Il6 is infection cytokine,which is raised in covid patients,and responsible for immune reaction in covid 19 patients.
Google cytokines and psy meds,if you are interested…

I’m on high doses of two APS and I got sick from a covid variant, but I feel like it could have been a lot worse considering. For example my mom got really sick from the variant, but she has older age, health problems, and other barriers working against her.

~Oh I just read following article on SZ pts and Covid… it mentioned that lack of advocacy and proper access to care lead to the severity of Covid in patients? So I guess recovery against Covid in SZ patients would also depend on their regular access to care.

So interesting, thanks for the articles!

Oh and, COvid still sucks lol.
