Do you feel your meds in a bad way?

in fact, 2 hours after taking them I really feel bad… its like I feel my brain in my head plus I am really oppressed intellectually and emotionally. it lasts for 2 hours… I kind of want to continue my meds cause I think I feel better in the day because of them… but this feeling after taking them is tough… do you feel bad instead to feel a good kick in hours after your take?

At the beginning I did. Before they built up in my system. But I notice if I take them at night instead of the morning, it’s like they ‘wear off’ while I’m awake.

howmuch time it took for you everhopeful to be used on them? you think this bad feeling is just because ive started them a month ago? I don’t know what ill do if this doesn’t goes away in the coming months…
p.s. plus I feel better now in the days and I am not sure if this is the meds or my efforts…

Yes, it took a few months.

ifeel my brain in this moments and I feel it like a big mess… I am not sure that I need my meds… my ex also was thinking that

It would depend on what you take, but if you’re taking one daily dose maybe it could help to split it into two doses morning and night?

I had that heavy/off feeling for about 3 months before I got used to my meds. With Saphris it only took about 2 months, but it still took a while for my body to adjust. Hang in there. Hopefully you get some relief soon.

thanksdear led, I really need some more support… sometimes its hell what I feel. I prefer to take my zyprexa in the evening cause it goes bad 2 hours after taking it… I am so worried in these moments that I cant go to sleep… yes, ill wait probably 3, 4 months… if its still bad here I think that ill think twice if I need this pills…

What are you like off meds? Do the meds work?

ihave headaches without my meds plus I have intrusive thoughts… I never really tried to go off them in fact… I was brainwashed when I went in the psychiatry… I was seeing the pdocs as gods :/… I wanna cry, I still suffer a lot… I have pain in my soul… I never hallucinated in fact… but I was anxious, dysmorphophobic, paranoid from people outside, depressed, cant think well on the stuff of the life, lacking selfconfidence plus I was afraid and complexed of other people with mental problems…I am just a big mess. the only fact that I noticed with zyprexa is that helps me to go outside more which helps me to combat more… but a lotsof people around me think that I don’t need my meds…

I’m 56, and I’m starting to age. My skin is getting less elastic. I haven’t lifted weights in a while, so I don’t know if my muscles are shrinking. I think these indications of age are occurring earlier than they normally would in my life span because of the med’s. In a way I am upset about the fact of my aging do to med’s, but then I think who wants to live forever?
