I’ve always had this theory that if I wasn’t put on such heavy medication at a young age I maybe wouldn’t have so much issues.
When I was young I would be on a cocktail of an AP, AD, and stimulant. Also something to help me sleep, and something to help me if I got bad anxiety. At some points in my adolescent life I had to take pills four times a day.
Doing the math I’ve been on APs since I was 15. That’s over seven years of being on anti psychotics. I know it’s alright for an adult mind, but do you think that might, potentially rot a young persons brain? Or at least change the chemical makeup of it?
I’ve been on seroquel, risperadone, mainly. However I’ve been on others as well that worked less for me. My doctors are also trying anti convulsants as mood stabilizers.
Has anyone else been on APs since they were very young? Or does anyone have any helpful information for me?
