so I took ziprasidone again this morning. Honestly I get 0 sedation from it and it seemed to actually wake me up which is odd lol. It definitely calms my agitated thinking/feelings.
40mg a day is still quite low though as thats what I was told to start with before going up to 80mg, I doubt that is sufficient for acute psychosis. I dont really have much in terms of psychotic symptoms at moment as it seemed to of calmed down (no intrusive violent images and thoughts)
I also woke up quite a bit earlier than usual and couldnt get back to sleep as I felt pretty rested surprisingly. I usually wake up very groggy.
I read some studies on it. 1 Study said for schizophrenia that the effective dose was around 120mg a day up to 160mg a day.
Also in some of the scientific literature it stated that it also is a potent partial agonist for the 5-ht , 5ht1a receptor which is serotonin. So it could improve mood im guessing.
just writing this for a log
