Good news from the pdoc

Just got back and she told me that I had been on prolixin, an older generation med so long that I no longer have any danger mostly of getting tardive…this is great news for me, I always worried about it…since older generation meds are known for this…yayyy.


Interesting. I have been on a typical injection for ten years. Do you mind if I ask how many years you have been on prolixin? You can dm if you’d prefer

about ten years…a long time right?

Yay this is good news for me. My med, depixol, is quite notorious for TD so hopefully I have avoided that


I would like to lower my zyprexa because of this but my pdoc wants me on more. Is it possible 5 mg zyprexa might not have an effect on a person? It is a low dose. I’m on 10 mg now.

if you feel ok, I would let it remain at what you’re taking…that’s a newer med and doesn’t carry as much a threat about tardive as the older generation meds…you’re fine if you ask me but i’m no doctor…ask your pdoc really…sorry.
