  1. I saw pdoc today and she put me on anafranil for my ocd having failed on prozac, lexapro, Zoloft, and buspar. I start it tonight. Is it sedating, calming, or activating? Any major side effects? Thanks!
  2. Clozaril has really helped me. I started with 12.5mg 2x daily and over a couple of months went up to 500mg/day which is where I am at now. Psychosis is limited, I would consider it a miracle. Good luck!
  3. Prozac pooped out on me so pdoc wants me to try lexapro..any experiences with it?
  4. I feel like such a failure not working or going to school. I guess I have to come to terms with my declining health (gastroparesis) and on going mental health issues.
  5. I don't work or go to school because of my MI and gastroparesis...
  6. From what I know, forgive me if I am wrong, Clozapine is indicated for psychosis that has failed on 2 or more other antipsychotics. Also not all pdocs are registered to prescribe it.
  7. Clozapine has worked really well for my suicidal thoughts. Its kept my psychosis at a more tolerable level. I still suffer from anxiety.
  8. I have the exact same problem, I have ruined many nighttime shirts. Everything gets soaked. I wish I had a solution to offer you, but I would like to read how others have coped with this.
  9. I dont think my doctor prescribes benzos unfortunately. It comes in waves but its worse at night
  10. Feeling like I've got some word salad lately...feel unwell,
  11. I would get a 2nd opinion, reasons being I think the goal should be to minimize psychosis through medication. I explained to my pdoc that therapy never helped because when I go into psychosis I don't have the mental capacity to utilize coping skills..I am completely unable to reason with. So after failing on multiple AP/AAP my doctor put me on clozapine and I have been on it a great while, my psychosis is.a world of difference.
  12. At first when starting Clozaril I was getting anxious about getting tests done and needing the blood work sent to my pdoc and pharmacy every week. I felt like it was a lot of work orchestrating everything so I could get my meds every week. Turns out to be easy and blood work is always sent to my pharmacy and it has never been delayed
  13. I have been doing great - psychosis wise. The Clozaril really works well for my psychosis. I am still tapering off of the Seroquel and will get anxiety in waves but I think I will be fine, especially with 400mg of Clozaril. I also have already lost weight since tapering off the Seroquel.
  14. Why did he cancel on you? That would make me feel bad too, its kinda like a let down.
