  1. I take 2mg at night. I find it sedating but everyone is different.

    THIS exactly....for me self-compassion and acceptance is about realizing that I have a biological disease and need to do whatever I need to do to manage and that I should not feel guilty about something I can only marginally control. Would you say to someone that has diabetes or epilepsy that they are a loser because they can't work or have to take medication? We have brain scans for people with depression and schizophrenia. Its a real thing. Unfourtantly, there is also not a 100% cure yet. That's why we have to keep working on yourselves and never give up even if we feel like it sometimes.

    They did a really good short lived TV show about Hannibal when he was a psychiatrist and before he was detained.
  4. So I've experienced some rebound in depression (and OCD if its related) in the past month. My pdoc initially had me titrate up to 3mg of rexulti. It made me way too sedated and I didn't notice any change so we went back to 2mg. Several pdocs have told me that clozapine in higher doses can help with depression. Has anyone gotten help with depression from clozapine and at what dose? I currently am taking 300mg. I really don't want to up the clozapine because I'm already suffering from extreme weight gain from it but my options for dealing with depression are running out. BTW, I can't tell if lexapro is helping or not. Thanks in advance.
  5. Another advantage with Invega is it's delayed release so you get coverage all day.
  6. I take mine in the evening. I experience mild to moderate sedation with it.
  7. You should just focus on treatment and getting the right meds to treat your symptoms. The diagnoses really don't matter.
  8. I have schizoaffective disorder and OCD...I've seen others with the same combo as well. It sounds like you need to contact your pdoc about what to take to alleviate your symptoms.
  9. As someone who has taken both, I feel like rexulti is cleaner in terms of side effects. It may just be my individual experience but I have not gotten any side effects from rexulti whereas abilify was like all over the place in terms of side effects depending on the dosage.
  10. I've been on rexulti for like 3 or 4 months and it has kicked my depression and anxiety in the ass and helped stabalize my mood. I, however, haven't noticed anything with regards to psychosis. Either it is doing nothing or my clozapine is blunting my psychotic symptoms.

    How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    Shit I know how you feel. I've been in 7 car accidents in my life and just two weeks ago was in a an accident where I was in the passenger side and a SUV smashed right into my side of the car and airbags were deployed. I already have a hard time driving because I get thoughts that people are following me and trying to kill me and I'm too scared to drive on the freeway. NOW everytime I drive by a car I think they are going to hit me The only positive factor is it is a reminder to live your life to the fullest and not get caught up in bullshit because you never know when your time to go will be.
