Hi, I’m new here and I thought I should ask a few questions on a med that’s been brought up to me a few times by my pdoc.
Prolixin (fluphenazine) came up as a recommended AP after I took a genesight generic test to see what med may work best for me. Seroquel (tried that and failed), Geodon (also failed), Invega (I’m very hesitant because I hear terrible things about it), Prolixin, and Latuda all came up as being metabolically compatible. I’ve also tried Vraylar (landed me in the ER with incredible side effects) and Abilify (gave me mild tardive dyskinesia).
Currently on Latuda 80mg, which handles my hallucinations well as well as stomped out my paranoia. But I’ve gained 40lbs from the starting point while simultaneously developing incredible nausea and vomiting. I can’t eat, period. Zofran as an anti nausea does absolutely nothing. Can’t lower the dose because 80mg is what worked for me, anything lower will just let symptoms through.
My question - has anyone had any experiences with Prolixin? Good or bad? I’m trying to decide whether or not to even bring it up at my next appointment.
Hmmm, thank you all. I guess I should do more reasearch and talk to my doc.
I’m afraid of making my tardive dyskinesia worse. Its so minor right now, but what I’m seeing whenever I look up prolixin is that it has high instances of TD. Maybe I should look into drugs that weren’t recommended for me in the test?
