I’m falling apart. I have been on 100 mg of Clozaril (or various doses) for a year and it’s been really good but in the last few days I’ve noticed this butler who stands beside me (never sits always stands) and it’s a dog and it pushes these thoughts through my ears and into my brain. I’m worried that it will edge out the space in my brain.
Has anyone else dealt with this please help me I’m panicking I’m so anxious and I emailed my doctor but I’m too anxious to do anything right now and I don’t know if this is like seriously a butler dog or if I need to change my meds help
I have an anxiety prn but I literally feel like I’m going to throw up. I emailed him and he read it (kaiser tells you) so I know he’ll get back to me but it’s almost the end of the workday and any person overnight won’t change my meds.
problem is he’s changing my anxiety/depression med too and this just cropped up right before I’m starting the new med.
Do you have any thoughts of harming yourself. You sound very distressed right now but try to realize that this is all just stuff going on in you mind. I know it can seem very real when it is happening. It sounds like some kind of med change or dosage increase may be in order. It just might take some time. You’ve taken the first step and contacted your doctor, if things get unbearable there is always the hospital emergency room. Once you talk to your doctor and your meds get adjusted there is a good chance you will be okay.
If you are feeling suicidal or having a mental health crisis, please tell someone — a friend or family member, a teacher, a doctor or therapist or call 911 (if you’re in the U.S.) or the Emergency Medical Services phone number in your country.
You can also call a crisis intervention hotline—these are available in the U.S. and in many other countries. You do not need to be actively suicidal to benefit from a crisis hotline.
Not killing myself lately I mean I was thinking about it earlier this week but I’m doing better with that mostly I’ve been self harming because I’m stressed out and I don’t know what to do and I’m worried that my doctor is going to send me inpatient to get my meds adjusted because he’s adjusting two meds not just one and I HATE the ER I literally can’t stand it. I’ve been inpatient in bed restraints booty juiced all that ■■■■ and the ER is STILL the worst part.
I never self harmed, but I understand where you are coming from. They once strapped me down to a gurney. They’ve locked me up in the psych ward for weeks. I hated it too. However, a few years ago they made a med adjustment and switched me to Lurasidone and my life improved dramatically, in a way I never thought possible.
