I’m sorry I haven’t been on here lately, I just have been really busy with work, losing weight, and beating a addiction. But this is not the topic of my post today, however, it will come into play.
Caplyta has been helping a lot. I hardly worry about my positive symptoms and my negative symptoms have been greatly reduced. I have even been able to show my jocular self on occasion.
My inaugural month showed great improvement on almost ever symptom. But then we ran into a unforseen issue, and that was the insurance company didn’t want to cover it because it was too new of a medication. So I went back on 4mg of risperdal for about a month, before we could get it worked out. I am now on caplyta again, and decreasing my risperdal dosage, to which I am on 1mg.
And the best, most gracious part is that I’ve been losing weight with dieting and working out, but that was not very possible on 4mg of risperdal.
Overall, I am extremely happy with lumateperone so far. Still, I have a lot of issues elsewhere that I need to get fixed. Have a good one everyone, I hope I can get on here more often.
