Hi all! I'm mom of adult son who has psychoses episode five month ago. He was under olanzapine for 1,5 month and then decided stop it. Generally, he did OK, he started to work tow month ago and shown good sigh of recovery. But lately his mood starts to be constantly bad and now we have to admit he is in deep depression. If there somebody who made or under recovery after psychotic episode, pleas shear your thoughts, I would really appreciate it. It would help me a lot to understand what is going on with my son. Thank you!
I don’t know where to go from here. My issues seem so endless and treatment-resistant even though I’ve never been told that. I just feel so lost and scared that nothing and no one can help me...
my issues consist of severe clinical depression, panic attacks, generalized anxiety, OCD, and depersonalization/derealization.
I’m on meds... Anafranil 200 mg, Klonopin 2 mg, and Rexulti 2 mg. I still just feel so blah, hopeless, dead already, etc.
Can anyone give me suggestions of where to go from here? What meds to try? I had genetic testing done too for med compatibility of that helps at all...
Thank you kindly for your replies 😊
My psych doc has called two times to see if I started on the Latuda. I haven't. I originally wanted to wait until the Seroquel and Pamelor left my system before I started anything new. That was 3 weeks ago. Now experiencing inking in of paranoia, insomnia, fear, anxiety, depression, more migraine and it's preventing me from starting Latuda.
I have some key appointments I have to keep between now and the end of the month that I absolutely cannot cancel. I don't want to start Latuda and experience overwhelming side effects that will scare me from leaving my home to make these appointments. However, living in agony with these symptoms is horrible and I know I need to start on the Latuda. After todays appointment, I will have 10 business days until my next appointment, I could take a small sample and see how I react for a few days.
I'm also still spending like crazy, have maxed out all my credit cards, applied for more. I know I am doing this to comfort myself. However, I am now sending back more than half what I am buying, but I am in trouble with one credit card. I called my bank and asked for help and they agreed to suspend my credit card until I get it under the credit limit. All this spending started after I watched my neighbor pass away and since then I have not been doing my daily walk because the only path I can use with my rollator is right where she passed away. I just haven't been able to get myself beyond this.
I tried starting with a trauma therapist but that ended badly, she wanted me to discuss my past traumas in detail during the first and second meeting and half way thru the second meeting I flew out of her room having a panic attack. I kept warning her I needed to work on grounding and she wouldn't, so won't go back. She hasn't called to see why I haven't been back, so will let that one go.
I'm a basket case right now.
