Hi everyone, I’m new here. I’m not sure what I’m expecting out of a forum, but I’ve been feeling kind of alone lately.
So I’m 26 - and in a nutshell I have been hallucinating and having problems with reality for the past 4 years. I’ve only recently sought out psychiatric help and I have a tentative diagnosis of schizophrenia. I don’t know how to feel about this.
I’m taking zyprexa, Zoloft, and Buspar. I’ve been having some suicidal thoughts lately so the Zoloft is a new addition. I have been taking the other two for less than 3 months now. Things have gotten better, but I still hallucinate often. But I can tell what’s a hallucination- so I’m guessing that means I’m getting better?
So basically I’m looking for other people’s experiences with Zoloft. Or any medication really.
And I’m hoping that knowing there’s a community will help me not feel so alone. Any experiences you have with this diagnosis, or the process of getting better, would be greatly appreciated.
