Creativity: successful singers on anti psychotics

#1

Hello guys, I am a pop r and b singer. I heard about Brian Wilson being on clozaril and still being a successful vocalist. Have any of you taken antipsychotics and still kept your singing talent and creativity? If so what medication did this for you?

I heard Demi Lovato is bipolar. I don’t know about her being a good singer.

I think the idea that anti-psychotic medications greatly reduce creativity is a myth. There are certainly tradeoffs when taking meds, but if I had to choose a little reduced creativity against being sane, safe, and at ease, I’d choose the meds every time.

I also really can’t imagine an unmedicated schizophrenic being very entertaining. Nobody wants to see that.
