  1. I thought having schizophrenia and anxiety was bad enough, now I have PTSD and borderline personality disorder. It kind of is a new development because they solved the schizophrenia with a med change and it seemed the schizophrenia was in the way of a bunch of other crap. Can't win here.
  2. Holy shit dude, we're like having a mirror image experience. I was also on it for a little over a month before I got nutty. I've been on 4.5 for 2 days and on the first day all the positive symptoms were gone. I also have been taking extended release melatonin to help with the insomnia. It's the only thing that (partially) works.
  3. Dude I went full blown delusional and hearing voices yesterday on 3mg. Doc upped me to 4.5mg as well. Is this a common thing for this stuff to just stop working after a while?
  4. Alright I'm fully adjusted to the Vraylar now. For the first time last night I got 7 1/2 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Most of the negative side effects seem to be going away. My pdoc doesn't want to see me for another 3 months so he's keeping me on it. He told me the increased allergies aren't actually increased allergies. They're regular allergies that for some reason my zyprexa was controlling. I gotta warn people on stage 2 antipsychotics. This shit will bring back all aspects of your regular personality for better or for worse. When I was a kid, I was a bit of a dick. The Zyprexa blunted all of my emotions and I thought I had just gotten over that with maturity. So far I've gotten into an argument with my pdocs receptionist, gotten confrontational with my pdoc, and went off on some random couple for taking too long at a toll booth. The Pdocs receptionist deserved it because she's unapologetically incompetent. The other two are just me going back to snapping on people because I'm now mentally competent enough to once again get mad at everyone. This shit will bring you back to baseline. I started taking Zyprexa at the age of 19, I was a zombie until 29. Now I'm a 29 year old with the emotional stability of a 19 year old if that makes sense.
  5. I've been with the same doc for 10 years and he's tapered me on EVERYTHING except abilify.
  6. Just want to update. My insomnia is quickly getting better. As long as I don't have an allergy attack I pretty much sleep fine. Be REALLY careful. Certain allergy medicines don't mix with Vraylar. Consult the pharmacist before buying anything. This stuff is very likely to make any allergies much worse, but the pharmacist gave me some stuff that works flawlessly. Everything I read said the insomnia goes away after 2 weeks. It's a little over the two week mark for me and mine is going away.
  7. Believe me it will. I'm feeling so great, I don't even care about my insomnia. I'm currently googling what allergy medication I can take with this stuff. The pharmacist gave me zyrtec.
  8. I believe the fogginess was from the clonezapam dose. I took it later than usual. Managed to get another hour of sleep and feel fine now. I'm taking the Vraylar in the morning.
  9. Actually I started taking this October 2nd and started the full dose October 9th. He upped my clonazepam. For the first time since I started taking this I actually woke up foggy headed and tired. I got 5 1/2 hours of sleep last night which is pretty good for me on this medication. Should I give it more time?
  10. I guess that makes me feel better about the guy. I was pretty pissed off about it. I thought he screwed up big time.
  11. You have no idea. My therapist scheduled an emergency visit and was asking me questions about what I did that day and I couldn't remember. The interaction is listed as "moderate". I had every single side effect on the interaction list maxed out.
  12. The guy mixed Vraylar and Trazodone. It's on the do not mix list. My long term memory become so bad I could not remember the names of the local parks I go to on a daily basis. I was slurring every word of my speech and I was altogether miserable. The guy freaked out when I called him and he realized what he had done. He had me call him today and luckily I'm better. Fucking idiot.
