After the disastrous cross-titration between Saphris and Thorazine, I had a seizure where I hurt myself considerably. I told the doctor I was done with antipsychotics. He reluctantly agreed, seeing as to how I’ve literally been on every damn med out there. When I had the seizure, I went to the ER, and HE pulled me off my antipsychotics saying, after a full workup, I could probably get by without them. He discharged me on a 90-day supply of Depakote (since when does the ER give 90-day scripts?!?!), and some Vicodin to get past the dislocated shoulders.
Tonight has been a little weird for me. I haven’t slept because my body is expecting its next round of antipsychotics to knock me out. Not happening. I’ll sleep from exhaustion tonight. Trying to get my body back on a natural schedule.
The Depakote has been doing wonders for me, It’s the glue that’s holding the ship together. I just hope I can continue making strides and becoming less med-reliant.
