#205

Hello @Om_Sadasiva , did you enjoy your weekend? I was with my sister in a different city, was mostly uneventful.


#206

Good job walking and taking a shower! I haven’t been doing either lately. Just haven’t been motivated. Maybe i can get back in the swing of things soon. Who knows? Good job, man!


#207

It was ok. No problem. No complaint.
I hear less voices and I am grounded in reality. You?


#208

I had no energy but it was a sunny day and I said why not?


#209

That’s great, man!


#210

How are you @disciple?


#211

I’m doing okay. I slept late today, until almost 10:30. I had been waking up early lately so that was a nice change. I see my pdoc in a little while. So things are good i guess. What are you up to?


#212

Nothing. I started therapy and i like it. I talk a lot and she hears.


#213

That’s good. I finally have a therapist i like talking to also. I have had others who i didn’t like so much.


#214

I told my pdoc that I still have hypertension and tachycardia. He said it’s not the meds but he lowered haldol


#215

All my antipsychotics have tachycardia as side effect. Why my pdoc doesn’t agree?


#216

In the morning I had 120 heartbeats


#217

I wonder why he doesn’t agree. Do you take any other meds besides psych meds? Just wondering if there’s another cause behind it.


#218

I take 3 antipsychotics, 1 tranquilizer-antipsychotic, 1 antidepressant.


#219

Do you see a regular doctor or just the pdoc? Did the tachycardia start when you went on the psych meds?


#220

I saw a cardiologist. I did all blood works.
I started noticing tachycardia when I had dizziness and I measured the pressure and i had hypertension. Since then everyday I have high pressure


#221

I take 2 pills for tachycardia but I still have it


#222

Oh i see. Well at least the cardiologist is aware of it. Maybe let him know that you’re still experiencing it if it’s bothering you. Maybe there’s something else you can try.
