I’m kinda confused. So I told him about my symptoms showing back up…said I was concerned and thought perhaps I should go back on an AP for a while, he said sure, but he’d like to try increasing my dose of depakote?
I really didn’t understand why he wanted to raise the depakote dose my mood has been pretty normal aside from getting upset/stressed from having to deal w the psychosis. When I brought this up he was saying it would help “slow my neurons down” and help me sleep…so I guess he was trying to go the route where if I had less anxiety I’d have less symptoms at night and be fine? Don’t know.
Anyways I asked for an AP too just to be safe…and he said we should try seroquel…which is weird as he was deadset on trying haldol this time. When I asked why not haldol anymore he said because of the prolactin issues I had had on Risperidone…but I remembered him recommending it to me because it worked similar to Risperidone but didn’t have the prolactin issues?? So very confused there.
Anyways I now have seroquel. I’ll keep ya updated on how I do! It’s a very low dose now, just 50 mg but I assume it’s just a starting dose. It’s also nice as at low doses it works simply as a sleep aid.
