Good morning. I saw my psychiatrist yesterday and I get to stop Abilify (which I am happy about). I remain on Invega, but he wants me to think about two other AP’s that he might want to try me on. Solian and Clopixol.
I just wanted to ask what your experience on either of these drugs has been. I’m not keen to try them. I would rather just stay on invega because I know what it does to me. I’m a bit worried that either of these drugs will turn me into a drooling zombie.
I still have hallucinations, delusions and paranoia but I think I am managing them well with just invega and I am still able to function (so long as I have valium on hand for emergencies).
Pdoc wants it all gone and talked about another drug which I can’t remember which is a last resort for when all other AP’s fail. The thing is that not all the hallucinations are bad and the most frightening ones I was having last year were sorted out with invega.
What if having hallucinations and the rest are just parts of what makes me, me? What happens, and who am I without them?
Sorry for the long post. I really appreciate that you took the time to read it and any feedback I am grateful for.
