  1. Good luck with the haldol. It works well for me. I take 2.5mg in the morning and 5mg at bedtime.
  2. My pdoc prescribed a small dose of kemadrin for the involuntary movements and they have gone away thankfully
  3. My nose was totally blocked when I started taking Seroquel but a few months later it went away. However in the past few years my nose was severely blocked again and my GP referred me to an Ear Nose and Throat specialist and he said I had lots of polyps in my nose and sinuses. He prescribed oral steroids and a steroid nasal spray which didn't help so I had to have surgery to remove the polyps. However the polyps grew again and 18 months later I had more surgery and this time it was very effective and I can finally breathe through my nose for the past few years. I do use a nasal spray though. Anyway I don't know if the polyps were linked to Seroquel. It was probably just a coincidence. However I definitely had a really blocked nose when I started taking it in 2005 and it did clear up when I was on it a while
  4. I started feeling calmer and less manic after being on a steady blood level of approximately 0.8mmol/l for a week or so and then bit by bit my mood evened out over the next couple of weeks. It worked really well for me I took it for 13.5 years but had to go of it to my detriment because I developed stage 3 chronic kidney disease. I'm now on Valproate
  5. Yes. I've just started knitting and made a blanket for my cousin's baby. Do you live or have ever visited a European country?
  6. I also agree that low dose chlopromazine could help with sleep. When I was in the psych unit a few years ago the pdoc prescribed 50-100mg PRN as I had severe insomnia and it did the trick
  7. I like spaghetti Are you able to work....even part time??
  8. After the humid weather (for Ireland!!!) it has now cooled down. We had torrential rain all day yesterday but today was dry
  9. Feeling fairly balanced and in control..for now lol
  10. Thank you for your response. It is only very slight tongue movement but I will definitely speak to my pdoc about it.
  11. Thank you so much for all your replies. I guess topamax isn't the way to go for weight loss and I just have to slog it out the hard way. I don't think that my pdoc would be up for it anyway
  12. jt struggled like us all but that never stopped him from reaching out and offering advice even though it was obvious he too was suffering. He was a genuinely caring person and crazyboards certainly won't be the same without him. May he rest in peace now. Joyce
  13. I take haloperidol 7.5mg and my right hand shakes from time to time. When I become aware of it I can stop it but then I notice it happening again. It's strange that it is only one limb that is affected. Anyone on haloperidol have this side effect? I also have a bit of tongue movement but know that that can be a side effect
