I think the damn meds cause it. Pdoc lowered haldol from 60mg to 40mg


#224

Have you tried other psych meds? Did they cause it, too?


#225

I don’t know. I can’t be sure. I take 3 antipsychotics, I don’t know which causes it. How are you @disciple?


#226

I’m doing okay i suppose. I woke up early today. Much earlier than normal. That happens when i get depressed for some reason. I’ll probably try and lay back down at some point though. Just catching up on the forum right now.


#227

I’m i would listen to what your cardiologist says about your heart. Pdocs are doctors but they aren’t as expert about the heart as a cardiologist


#228

Yes, cardiologist said that I should decrease doses of antipsychotics. She meets many clients with schizophrenia because of the antipsychotics


#229

Could you get your cardiologist to speak to your psychiatrist. It is appropriate for doctors to communicate over a patient - you won’t be stepping on toes


#230

I don’t know. I decreased haldol. So if i still have hypertension I will call my pdoc again.


#231

Since I reduced zyprexa, from 80 to 60mg i hear almost zero voices


#232

The various antipsychotics induce extrapyramidal symptoms, impaired glucose and lipid metabolism, weight gain, hypertension and arrhythmias, with variable frequency.


#233

Hello @Om_Sadasiva I am glad to hear that you are not hearing as many voices.


#234

The mustache of Captain Beefheart is intertwined with my brain neurons so tightly. My head hurts. I have strange sensations


#235

Yes, my friend. How are you?


#236

I am doing fine. I didn’t sleep the best because I forgot to take my meds before bed so I took them first thing this morning. I don’t usually forget to take meds but it slipped my mind.


#237

I don’t forget meds. But sometimes it happens.

It’s the next tattoo: videhamukta, free from every duality, free from the witness state, perfect silence


#240

I have intrusive thoughts of strangling my dog while she sleeps


#241

My head is foggy. I can’t think straight.


#242

Today first thing in the morning I measured pressure and heartbeats. High pressure and 130 heartbeats. I called cardiologist and left a message
