  1. I am on 500mg of Clozaril. It has helped with my psychosis a lot! It was worth the weekly blood tests (now its monthly since I've been on it for over a year). The only side effect I get is excessive drooling while sleeping.
  2. Thank you, @Schizophrenic_Sanity for the update. I am glad she's getting the help she needs.
  3. Judgemental prick at the CVS drive thru

    CVS treats me like a piece of crap. They argue that I have a co-pay when I don't. They have to call medicaid for over rides and give me grief for that even though thats protocol. I once had to report a pharmacy tech for gossiping about me right in front of me. Needless to say she's been nice since. Still hate CVS though.
  4. Today and everyday is bad for me OCD wise. Nothing helps
  5. What does your anxiety attack look like?

    I feel a pit in my stomach. Worries flood my mind, my cheeks turn pink, I have a hard time breathing. Everything feels completely overwhelming. I feel the need to escape but have nowhere to go.
  6. Trying to control OCD

    Saw pdoc, She prescribe the Zyprexa. I told her I wanted the lowest dose possible, so she put me on 2.5. My main AAP is Clozaril, I need the tiny dose of Zyprexa for OCD/anxiety
  7. Trying to control OCD

    I can't take either of those because of Akathisia. I am going to ask about Zyprexa because I took it in the past with pretty good results I think. its been awhile so I would like to give it another try. I am going to try to stay away from AD's and stick with AAPs for OCD. Have you tried Zyprexa and did it help?
  8. Trying to control OCD

    Luvox has made my anxiety one million times WORSE! My anxiety is SO bad all the time, 24/7. I got a cancellation appt today. I don't know what other options I have, any input?

    Thanks, Melli! <3
  10. Trying to control OCD

    Thank you, Crazyredhead. I saw my pdoc and we decided to give Luvox a go. I need this to work. I came to the realization that Risperdal was making me worse. It was great in the beginning until I started feeling obsessive, and absolute dread. She's starting me on 50mg. Fingers crossed! Any experience with Luvox would be appreciated!
  11. Trying to control OCD

    Thank you so much for commenting. Yes, I am on only 1mg of Risperdal, reason being my pdoc has me on a good sized dose AAP (Clozaril, 500mg) so she is reluctant to go high on another medication. I hope the risperdal isn't causing the worsening anxiety, I don't think it is because it helps calm me down. I think I could try a small increase, like 0.25 in the morning. She may be willing to go higher than that but I am not sure.
  12. So my OCD is out of control. My intrusive thoughts have gotten better with the Riserpdal however my obsessive thinking has taken a turn for the worst. My anxiety is sky high and not well managed. I thought maybe what could be a solution is to add .25mg of Risperdal in the morning. Does that sound reasonable? Do you think that would possibly help? I know the risperdal helps with my intrusive thoughts so I don't necessarily want to switch. I have tried anafranil but that pooped out on me and insurance stopped covering it. I am hoping I can just mess with my Risperdal dose until symptoms are managed... thoughts?
  13. Way to go Cheese for calling! I hope something is done as I know you are suffering! I've never tried that particular AD but if you do try it, I hope it works!
  14. I don't think theres anything wrong with taking multiple AAP's, especially if they help. I am on 2 but have been on 3 in the past. I am really proud of you for being open with pdoc...I hope the Invega gives you the relief you deserve.
  15. I am sorry you are going through this, Cheese. I am hoping you and your pdoc can possibly find an alternative. I know its hard to ask or bring up med changes (at least for me) but hopefully your pdoc can see how much you are struggling. Much love. x
