Dweii Posted November 23, 2006 Share Posted November 23, 2006 After about an hour of she and I looking through her journals to find out the causes of my psychotic episodes, it was clear that Concerta wasn't the only culprit. There have been so many other factors surrounding these periods, the residues of a marijuana induced psychosis, lack of sleep, being on a too low antipyschotic dose... Now Ritalin treated me really badly. On the second day of that I OD'd. But Concerta always seemed to be milder and I never had psychotic problems with it when other specific factors were not involved. Also, my BP has been relatively stable since May. So she agreed to let me try a small dose, 18 mg for three days and then going up to 36 mg. Sure, I was on 90 mg before but it should help some. We'll have phone contact if I start feeling weird. We also talked about Geodon possibly "blocking" Concerta and she said it would to some extent, but that she had other patients on Concerta and Geodon and it had some effect. I really needed this. I've been overwhelmed with school and life recently and been feeling more ADHD than usual. Hehe. I guess I just wanted to share somewhere, real life people tend to get bored of medication talk quickly... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
