I would put this under medication, but the last time I did, it took two weeks to get a reply on the med topic…
I have stopped taking my Latuda, not because I want to, but because I puke it up every time now that I am out of my anti nausea prescription, and over the counter measures are not enough.
My shrink is looking for something new to treat me with, but, we have literally tried everything, and all the meds that didn’t make me suicidal or manic, have stopped working.
She has suggested that she will look into cannabis oil, to treat my depression, which is the strongest of my symptoms, but I am worried that it may cause issues at work, because while my boss has no issue with medical cannabis use, I work with heavy machinery, and that just seems dangerous. I could see using it on days when I don’t work, or days when its so bad I cant think straight, but to use it everyday?
I know that smoking ‘pot’ can be bad for SZ, but I also know they make cannabis oils that don’t have the hallucinogenic aspect, and only have the chemical that causes mellow mood and ‘dopey’ mentality.
Does anyone here have any experience with these kinds of treatments? I am literally out of options at this point, beyond getting experimental brain surgery in Mexico…(some Mexican doctor is saying he cured mental illness with a high voltage charge directly to a patients brain…)
