So now the vivid intense dreams are gone. And I have not seen any shadow people or animals in a few days. Only twice did I see a shadow in the corner of my eye but I couldn’t make anything out so I didn’t mind it. Getting more used to the medication as far as tiredness goes. I am able to stay up longer after taking it and I am drinking a lot less coffee to stay awake. Any other questions on my experience with ITI-007 ask away.
Oh and someone asked me about sexual side effects. I have none with abilify I was hyperactive sexually. Like compulsively in a bad way. Now I feel normal again and am still able to enjoy the alone time I spend with my husband.
do you have voices?
I didn’t the first two days I took it and a few random days since then. But when I get super stressed and overwhelmed they creep in. If I calm myself down they go away. I have also been really stressed with kids, school, and moving so I am not surprised they crept in at moments.
How’s the nausea?
It has been so much better. I usually feel it when I wake up and then it goes away after a little bit. I still have it at random times of the day but it isn’t constant.
nausea must be due to abilify withdrawal…
Can you compare ITI-007 with other antipsychotics?
That is what I was thinking.
I don’t think I have to much insight as every med hits each person different and I have only tried 3 antipsychotics. The first I tried was awful for me. Risperdol gave me a lot of side effects. I was in a drug liked state, forgot everything, and had extremely bad motor side effects. Abilify made me gain a bunch of weight and gave me hypersexuality. They all 3 make me tired. My depression is better on ITI-007. I feel more motivated even if it’s hard to get started. I also feel better cognitively. I can read better now.
Thank you for update…
Shadows can be frustrating as well as other things. Risperdal made me all doggy. But hopefully this new med will keep up its vigor for you.
Yeah I hadn’t seen shadow since I was 15 years old and on meth until I started ITI-007. Glad they went away for now.
