Sorry I didn’t reply earlier.
I’ve been off for 5 months now.
I still haven’t recovered from the damage done to my brain and body from the drugs. But things are definitely better compared to when I was on the drugs.
One withdrawal effect I’ve noticed is that I’m adjusting when it comes to things like concentration. I guess when your dopamine levels are blocked for that long and then all of a sudden you’re exposed to dopamine then that can have an impact. I’m sure things will get better the longer I’m off the drugs and as my body and brain adjusts. I think I’ve probably been through the worst withdrawal effects so far. So, it’s all up from here.
Good to here you’re going good
Going off paliperidone palmitate was a great decision for me. It was pretty noticeable the difference coming off it. I can think easier and I have thoughts. It’s so much easier to walk around and my body feels lighter and not stiff.
