Saphris - made me either stoned or have really bad akathisia
Depakote...just made me fat...I went from 125/130 to 160 in 6 months...
Thorazine - auditory and visual hallucinations...helps with the paranoia though
- not being able to tell between dreams and reality
- hallucinations in the between state of awake and sleep
Geodon - whenever I drank alcohol, I wouldn't get buzzed, tipsy, or drunk...I would just go straight to hungover
Abilify - horrid tremors
One of the meds i was on...don't remember which one, made me have really weird, vivid, and intense dreams, not bad...just weird
One made me wet the bed
most everything in the AP world has given me either TD symptoms or akathisia
nothing too out of the ordinary...I don't really get shocked by much at this point.

I'm actually doing considerably better than I was a few months ago when I joined here. I came here while I was hallucinating, having some intense delusions, couldn't control my anger (ie tearing the door off of the wall), and would fall flat on my face in a puddle of depression that would last for months.
I haven't had a manic phase since I went IP in May...I was manic probably a few days/weeks before that.
I've been depressed but only for short times, been suicidal yeah, but been able to keep busy.
I have a job now, so I'm making something of myself and I'm moving out of my parents house in a few weeks
I'd say I went from to
If anyone needs any help, just let me know, I'm happy to help!
