Isn’t it something that for some people 5mg of a particular med can floor them whilst someone can take 50mg no problem?


#1

And for some people that 5mg can rid them of symptoms whilst the 50mg person could still be symptomatic.

I am glad there is a range of meds for this reason


#2

I take huge doses but I have no problem


#3

It’s all about horses for courses. It doesn’t mean the person on 50mg is iller than the person on 5mg. It isn’t a competition.

I think some meds just fit an individuals unique experience of sz


#4

No, I am not iller. Meds don’t work for me

If you had the right dr you would have tried clozapine a long time ago. There’s a 50% chance of recovery. What do you have to lose?

My protocol was to try invega and go right to clozapine if that didn’t work


#6

i take a low dose and i’m pretty good but if i took more i’d be very tired and probably worse off, its about finding the right balance with the right med is all i can say but thats what has worked for me personally :slight_smile:

Im on a truckload of medications and they don’t bother me. I guess everyone is different. Either that or I’m just so used to medication.
