I tried it but hated it
I opted for it. It was just convenient at the time years ago. But now my psych is very set on me staying on injections
Never. The idea is scary for me.
I take 3 APs but only one of them injection. I wish i could have injections for all APs
I’d rather be on them so I don’t have to keep remembering tablets
same here… i wish i could have the clozapine on injection too. I like my risperdal consta shot… i think it helps cause it doesn’t have the dips and spikes in blood with the med… it keeps it more constant so i like that.
I was tricked to take the injections. My social worker (at the time 7 years ago) and pdoc drilled it into me how much better the injection was and how I’ll not have to remember to take the pills. As soon as I agreed they had me, A few months later I didn’t want the injection but they put I had to take it in my community treatment order and I have been forced to have injections ever since, If I refuse to take it I’m taken to the hospital by the police or ambulance and refuse again I’m restrained/put to the fool and forcible injected which has happened a few times.
If I could afford it, I’d be on injections for sure. I like the Invega injection I got while I was on Medicaid. It was free, gave me energy, and I felt more clear. I can’t afford Invega generic pills either. It’s a bummer.
I’m sad because I have to stay on the shot in addition to the clozapine
I think you need it. Your drs are just trying to get you mentally healthy
you sure about that?
Yes. That’s what they’re there for
but they wont even consider switching meds
They must have a reason for it. Try to comply with your treatment plan
yes im complying this sucks though
That’s good. Keep it up. Let’s not derail this thread anymore
i always preferred pills as i could spit them out, that is why they have me on injections haha. but it’s nice i dont have to remember to take my medicine, just a 20 minute drive to the hospital every 3 months, 10 minutes in the waiting room, and 10 minutes with my nurse and that’s all i have to do.
Every 3 months? What shot do you get?
I hated injections. I’m much happier to be entrusted with pills.
