  1. @echolocation I'm actually taking an SSRI right now - Luvox - and it has been really helpful. Exposure therapy also helps, but I'm having trouble seeing long term progress.
  2. I can relate to this. After starting clozapine my mood has been running a bit fast, and I've been wondering if it's hypomania. I've decided that as long as I'm not having bad symptoms like driving recklessly and buying 20 pairs of jeans, that I'm not going to worry about it. I hope things work out well for you.
  3. My treatment team currently thinks my mood symptoms are secondary to the psychosis too. We've talked about decreasing my mood stabilizer completely, since clozapine is working so well.
  4. I rarely hear voices and when I do the tend to be muffled and/or unintelligible
  5. I'm home again after another 1.5 weeks IP stay. My plan is to go residential on Wednesday. More fun times with the SZA monster.
  6. @Iceberg and @CeremonyNewOrder My wife is really worried about me and wants me to go to hospital tomorrow morning, so that's the plan. Been getting death signals from the universe all day, so maybe it's for the best.
  7. I'm safe so far, but I don't know for how long, @coraline. I might get in touch with the resident on call tonight to see what he/she thinks.
  8. I woke up this morning feeling suicidal and agitated. I have a plan. I'm not sure if I have intent or not. The entity is putting thoughts into my head. I just want to give up.
  9. Clozapine 200mg (and titrating up very likely) - psychosis (plus 2mg Glycopyrrolate for drooling) Trileptal 600mg - mood stabilization Luvox 100mg - OCD/anxiety Clonazepam .5mg - agitation/anxiety
  10. I also have drooling and coughing! There has to be a connection. It's so gross. This drug better damn make itself worth the while.
  11. I can relate to this. I often hear indistinct chatter that I mostly can't understand, just snippets that don't make sense. Do you have any coping skills related to stress? If meds aren't really working maybe there are behavioral techniques you can use.
  12. Dealing with some negative symptoms today. Just can't find the motivation to do anything. On the bright side, I woke up easily at a reasonable hour, instead of sleeping 14-15 hours on zyprexa. So far so good with clozapine (apart from the drooling, yuck...).
  13. Out of the hospital, but still having auditory hallucinations. I think I need a higher dose of clozapine.
  14. Finally discharged from residential and PHP. Got married last week (yay!). Now back to my real life. Having some delusions and SH thoughts. Pdoc wants to start me on clozapine but he isn't on the registry, so I have to see a resident from the mood disorder clinic on Monday. I'm hoping this will go smoothly and I'll tolerate the clozapine well. @Wonderful.Cheese we should compare experiences!
