Risperdal makes me tired and gain weight, I can’t function after I take latuda after dinner, and the eps with ability is just way too much to handle. Any other suggestions?
It’s all personal trial and error.
True but I mean obviously every antipsychotic has a different side effect profile
Some people experience no side effects on a med whereas others experience many.
Like on abilify i experience high blood sugar and anxiety but others experience nothing.
It’s all about how a med affects you personally.
I like haldol and perphenazine the best.
Clozaril for me
Okay so what meds has everyone taken that’s given them the least side effects, and if there were side effects what were they?
I experience drooling and sedation.
I gained weight.
With perphenazine I get a tiny bit of restlessness and my sex drive is non existent and I can’t cry, but I think that’s about it.
Isn’t clorazil like a heavy duty ap? The side effects really aren’t that bad?
I have almost 0 side effects w latuda. I get very slight weight gain, very slight tiredness, and a little mental cloudiness after I take it at dinner time. Can anyone beat this? Looking for something that’ll let me continue to function after I eat dinner
Everyone’s side effects are different; I had the worst with Abilify and the best with Trilafon.
Clozaril is in the middle; for how it’s helped me, the side effects are minor.
I take rexulti and saphris and I pretty much don’t hear voices but I still know what they are thinking, so no hallucinations but still a little delusional but with insight. I’m having trouble sleeping through the night but I’m not sure if that’s a side effect it might be my bipolar acting up. I have mild trouble concentrating sometimes and lack of motivation. No weight gain. No medicine head, No dissociation. No headaches from the meds. I think I’ll stay on them for awhile.
Have you asked your pdoc about a dosage increase? I’m glad those meds are working for you though. Do you have a preference between saphris and rexulti?
generic prolixin for me…fluphenazine…10 mg twice a day…perfect med for me.
Vraylar is good.
I take Latuda and Geodon. They work well together.
There is no such thing as the perfect antipsychotic.
They all have side effects.
I’m on risperidone and I have to deal with plenty of side effects, but it is also keeping me out of the hospital or jail.
It’s a trade off.
Haldol saved me. I get light akathisia in my right leg.
Seroquel and Latuda for me, but I got lot of weight gain with Seroquel
