I'm on meds 18 years


how long are you on meds?


10 years and seven months.


On and off 14 years, regularly just 4 years and 9 months. By the way, much better quality of life, even though I still struggle with loads of symptoms and consequences of my behaviours. I would also need CBT to improve even more, and I am fighting to get it as much as I can.

Also, I have been a memeber of this forum for pretty much the same amount of time as I have been on meds, yay. ^.^


I think four or five years…?


One year. 15151515


I first took meds 8 years ago but been on 4 1/2 years consecutively now


I have been on meds for 6 or 7 years, I think.


About 4 or 5 years now


Started in 1996, but haven’t had medical insurance since 2014, so no pdoc, no meds.


17 years. Wow that’s a long time


Back on since a few months ago. I had a short period in 2014 when I was on olanzapine - who J I hate. Only diagnosed this year as sz and I’m 37. Seems implausable. Shouldn’t have mentioned the reptilians lmao

Hello there, it is amazing you keep on meds for such a long time. Have you developed any long term illness due to the side effect of the meds?
Thank you.
