So, I began my new treatment three months ago with new medication, Latuda, and old medication, Prolixin/ Fluphenazine, and meds alone were not enough to help with my symptoms. I have been tolerating my schizo affective depressive type disorder for 11 years now. I have tried multiple supplements, some helpful and some not, yet I came across this website two months ago to see what new information I could see. It took me about two months and a week to come with this topic; and surprisingly the inspiration to tell anyone on here what I am about to say. First off, I want to thank everyone who has expiremented with all the supplements available for researching on this site. Without any of you I would still become back-tracked with what I needed to know and try.
From when I was working as a licensed pharmacy technician I learned firstly about medication and then later supplements, but my mind was almost blown away with the information on this site. I never knew the building blocks of every protein in our DNA, amino acids, would be the major cursor to how to stabilize my disorder. So, I will show you what I was taking before here:
And many more
As you can see there is much I have expiremented on and all of it was costly, being nearly 112 dollars in one month.
Yet after just these past two months I have discovered what has helped. These are:
Medication (Latuda and Fluphenazine)
All of which reduced the cost to 50 dollars in one month.
The pinpoint as to how I see why any symptoms were almost unbearable is LACK OF SLEEP AND QUALITY OF SLEEP.
I only noticed this about 4 to 5 days ago that my lack of sleep and quality of sleep has always, ALWAYS been deficient. Now with l-theanine and glycine being taken at night I am able to fall asleep easier, stay asleep, go to REM sleep and dream, and wake up refreshed with only 2 to 3 cups of coffee in the morning to prep me up for the day.
So, again, I want to thank all patients and administrators on this site for helping me understand my disorder’s biology! Without any of you I would NOT have felt this better until many years later.
Now all I need to do is find a way to lose weight. I read on one person’s post that the right kind of sleep helped them lose weight easier. I will give this combo a few more weeks and see any other results.
