No these are not symptoms because of low dose. I have been stable and working for a few years on 5mg. This kind of thing rarely happens.
I suspect this is because I have taken a supplement that contains tryptophan at the same time as I took meds. I skipped this supplement yesterday and feel much better in regards to feeling paranoid.
I started taking abilify today and read on the pamphlet inside that it reacts with tryptophan. I suspect it is the same with zyprexa. I just connected that dot. (I am tapering zyprexa starting yesterday.)
The same kind of thing has happened before when I took valerian root. But it was hard to connect the dots at first.
But maybe my definition of negative symptoms are incorrect? They may be positive symptoms, but they are caused by a drug interaction and not a relapse. If it was a relapse it would be a consistent feeling. I haven’t felt like that today though. Just a few spells of beeing nauseaus from starting abilify. Felt icky so had to lay down for a while.
I read a few others say it is common to feel nauseaus in the beginning starting a new medication. I hope that is the case. Time will tell.
