How do you know you need a med adjustment

Im having trouble telling if the symptoms I’m experiencing warrant a meds change or just time to go away.

I had two complex hallucinations for the first time in months. Both of which happened at or shortly after work. That’s the part that makes me think I need new/higher dose of meds. I can’t be plagued by hallucinations at work. That’s dangerous as I work with heavy machinery and also I haven’t told anyone at work what my diagnosis is. They could fire me.

I don’t really want to take anymore medications though as the weight gain from the meds I’m currently on caused me to have high blood pressure. Do I choose mental health or physical…

Monitor your situation, and do call in sick if things get out of hand.

And get in touch with your pdoc like @everhopeful says, is good advice.

I have a sense when my medications are off. Frequently, I don’t know if I need more or less, however!

Updated: I called my pdoc. I have an appointment tomorrow. I’m sure he’s gunna start me on something new or change my dose. I’m pretty nervous.
