Hello I am wondering is there anybody there who suffers schizophrenia and work. How do u manage movement side effects extra pyramidal symptoms. Tremor, hands shaking. When I go out with some friends I cant stand the shaking of the hands. Antiholinergic makes job worsen. Help answer me please Is this because of that I m more nervous and can’t stand it.
Schizophrenia IS my job, and man!!! I put in work.
Do ur hands shake because of the antipsychotic
I take .5mg haldol and klonopin .5mg three times a day. I’m not shaky. I work 29hrs a week at a gas station.
Haldol by the way I heard is older antipsychotic with more eps I admire ur strenghts
I take such a low dose that I don’t really get the eps. What are you taking?
I dont know but mine is small doze too 60 mg I know that klonopin is antikonvulsant.When I took klonopin i was tembling so much but they stopped the anticonvulsant and I am mc better. When I took anticonvulsant I lost my hair. Now I am fine my hair is grown again. I have schizoaffective by the way. I am so ashamed that I m ill that I cadidate for cleaner of offices but I have majestry degree in university. I am taking herbs because I ll have an interwuie soon and I am afrad I will tremble
I think now the problem is in me
what is clonopin antiholinergic or what i took before anticonvulsant named depakin depakote. I read this in internet and I open my mouth excuse me
aa i read whats it but it leads to addiction how do u drink it so often every day or what
Thank u i will try it and if possible to hear more people write to me please I wonna hear you.
My cousin has essential tremor. DR put him on beta blocker and it’s better…
I drive around ■■■■■■■ pizza all day, it’s really hard and probably super unsafe. I’m worried i’m going to crash, I’m mostly visual.
Mister Waffles is it hard because of extra pyramidal symptoms or because u experience psychosis beside the antipsychotic
Stillperkin I asked for beta blokers but my heart veat and pulse is low and doctor dont let me use beta blockers
exuse me for the unnecessary smiles but I like to smile
I always had a full time job. My hands don’t shake. have you asked your doc about this? did your hands shake before or after you started the antipsychotic? I had a colleague like that once, nobody cares if your hands shake if you can focus and do your job well.
No my hands never shake like this. I asked my doctor thousand times. He cant help. I can’t stand it because my whole body is stiff or sniff i dont know the word it is like a concrete. And also I have panic attacks that makes the situation worsen and now at that moment I have and other problem I lost nine 9 kilograms because of Zeldox, I am about to become anorexic because of the drugs. I am ver depressed.
Basically everyone who has SZ in the U.S. qualifies for SSi or SSDi. You should be guaranteed income if you have to deal with such a debilitating illness.
If I was forced back into work, I probably could manage, but I’d be so low-functioning & hectic and I’d only agree to part-time work.
I’ve learned to live off of less than $12,000/year, so my survival skills are intact otherwise when it comes to my economic situation.
i am a plasterer by trade, i have worked on and off since the age of 13, i did all the work in my house, new flooring, plastered walls, hung new doors, i can do most construction jobs.
