Lowering meds didn’t help me… was able to get more energy todo something, but the voices came back. Every 3 seconds of my waking hours.
I am going to try to increase my meds again, because the voices make it unworkable. Hear talking in my head all day. They are quite telling, and at every single thing I want to do they say: No, don’t do it. Every single thing… they even preventing me from posting here. As if there is a bully in my head.
So upping to 15, and have to see what will happens. Not waiting for my psych.
I should up my dose too.
I have voices
My voices only got better when I went from 9 to 12 mg of Invega. Sometimes upping is a good idea.
My voices are more active in the mornings
@Om_Sadasiva In the early morning, your body’s cortisol production naturally surges and transitions you into wakefulness . Scientists refer to this phenomenon as the cortisol awakening response (CAR). Once you’ve woken up, this cortisol surge continues for 30-45 minutes before returning to its baseline after an hour or so.
I think it’s the longest without meds.
I take my meds at evening.
I get voices in the morning, 15 hours after last dose
Trying to live half my day at evening or night, feels more comfortable to me. Bit light sensitive due to the Abilify.
I experimented with Risperdal doses from 3 to 6mg. On 6mg was most stable but had life threatening side effects so now I am on 5mg. On 4mg stress triggers my psychosis and on 3mg I am always agitated/angry and rage. I was on 20mg Abilify for 8 yrs but developped dopamine dysregulation syndrome.
