I'm hearing music a lot this morning and

I see my pdoc tomorrow. I still have yet to form an opinion as to whether or not I think I need a meds change. On one hand hearing things is a bad sign and I should address it before I get into deeper trouble on the other hand it’s just a breakthrough symptom and it’s not going to get any worse and I can handle it. Which is true? I don’t know?

The incidences are getting closer together, almost everyday now, multiple times a day sometimes, and lasting longer. And it used to be that another sound would trigger it, now it’s happening without an obvious trigger. And it’s coming with some sensations of disconnectedness or nonreality.

But I only have one mg of Rexulti before I’m maxed, and I’m maxed on everything else. If I go up now and get sicker it would mean a whole other med for me and I don’t want the disruption that looking for a new med would cause. So I don’t know. That’s why I haven’t formed an opinion.

Is it possible your current meds are “poopin out on you”(losing their effectiveness)? You may not have a choice but to switch ap’s eventually if this is the case. I have heard that it can happen.

I don’t know. Maybe.

@leafy, this could be it. I’ve had meds “poop out on me” several times.

But definitely mention everything to your pdoc and see what they say/think. It’s a bit worrisome that the hallucinations and feelings of disconnectedness are getting worse and more frequent.

Do you have an appointment coming up, soon?

yes, I see her tomorrow. I’ve been telling her about the music and she’s offered me an increase to my Rexulti twice but I said I wanted to wait and see.

Don’t worry @leafy
Maybe all you need is a med adjustment.

If the music isn’t a huge bother but just an annoyance just don’t worry about it. Heck maybe you’ll get a catchy tune :blush:
