I recently had a psychosis that lasted three days because of a lack of sleep. But a couple of days ago after a good night’s sleep i woke up with no symptoms. I’m not complaining. But is this normal?
I once went off meds, had no psychosis for a few months then one day I had psychosis, then after 7 days, it came back for longer than one day.
How were your negative symptoms without meds? Did you have more energy? I still had some negative symptoms without meds. I feel that they will never go away…
I’m not on meds and still have a lot of negative symptoms so… I’d recommend working with your doctor for a different solution instead
On Abilify I had the least negative symptoms but it caused me worse issues.
I never had negative symptoms off meds. But i’m on medication which is why i think the psychosis lasted only 3 days.
Lack of sleep can cause temporary psychosis from what I read.
I went off meds before, too. I only lasted three months then i had a manic episode that turned into psychosis. I have schizoaffective disorder bipolar type.
For how long were you off your meds for though… For me it was 7 months. And that was enough time to start feeling the negative symptoms to start to go down, but then psychosis struck and so I never had the time for the symptoms to die down completely…?
Before i started having sleep problems a month ago i was still having symptoms. But now i feel normal. It’s weird because i heard voices every day for over a year. Now i can’t hear them.
I was off meds for 1-2 years.
