Artane worsening my SZ?

Has anyone used it? Im on it and sometimes when I take it i get like a confusion like state and its really uncomfortable

No but I just read about it, it can cause confusion and delirium in psychiatric patients. Delirium is like extreme confusion.

“People who are older or who have psychiatric conditions may become confused or develop delirium.”

If you want to read about it:

On the good side:

“It reduces the frequency and duration of oculogyric crises as well as of dyskinetic movements and spastic contractions. Trihexyphenidyl may improve psychotic depression and mental inertia frequently associated with Parkinson’s disease and symptomatic problems caused by antipsychotic treatment”

Yeah, in my country its prescribed like candy, Im on iy because of haldol. It doesnt do much to my tremor, I might stop taking it

Anticholinergic like artane can cause blurred or double vision, cognitive decline, confusion, and even hallucinations at high doses.

I take 2mg artane, my only problem with it is cognitive decline specially memory decline.
