Are my meds not working because

I was followed for so many years before getting treatment, or do I just not have sz?

The feeling of being monitored or followed is a common sz symptom.
These are fixed delusions that you are having @ZmaGal.
The truth is no one is following you.

The right meds can help dissolve these fears.

Don’t worry I have these same paranoid beliefs, bu the important thing is to tell that it’s not real

Mate - Your probably Sz. If your meds arnt working - try to recognise your mental health status and know there not working. Go to your psych and have your dose upped or changed. Your having a lil delusional wobble x.

Have you tried therapy to sort out your delusions. It helped for me.

I wish i could tell you the answer. Its all about trial and error. It took me years to find the right combination of drugs and thats with a mis-diagnosis. One day you will take your meds and they will “just work” - i promise you. It just takes time and alot of suffering inbetween x.

Have you tried every atypical AP @ZmaGal?

You have to find the right med/combos.

Well then what I suggest is being patient in your delusions and try to do reality checks

I can no longer afford most atypical. I’m stuck with typicals.

You just have to keep trying different APs.
Having those paranoid delusions all the time must be awful!

It is. I’m full of extreme fear 24/7. I just have a hard time believing it’s a delusion.

Yeah I am too, but the risperidone helps a lot.
If I was off my meds I would be a mess!
