Hi. I am new and scared

Recommended Posts

I usually keep this personal stuff to myself, but I thought maybe someone might have something positive to say, some help? I have a history of major depression, anxiety sometimes with psychosis; I am currently taking Zoloft 50 mg, Ativan .5 mg as needed. My therapist has stated that I need to go on something like abilifry for delusional thoughts.

I have severe intrusive thoughts at times, that crush me. Only on occasion do these occur, and when they do, it's usually severe.

I am permenantly disabled due to a neck injury, so I am dealing with all kinds of stress too.

I am very scared to go on an antipsychotic drug. I have taken geodon 20mg in the past and it has heavily sedated me. I currently have a 3 year old son who I stay at home with and am his caretaker. I can't afford to be that sedated...I feel like I am stuck between a rock and another rock..

My therapist says I need to trial by error find one that fits for me.

Any ideas?

Thx for hearing me out!

Hi, and welcome to Crazyboards.  I'm sorry you weren't greeted earlier today---I usually try to say hello to new people pretty promptly.


I think you will get more feedback to your question if you post it in the forum for antipsychotic drugs.  I can't comment because I haven't taken one, but I know we have a lot of members on them.  If your title includes some information about your question, I bet you will get some input pretty quickly.


Good luck and I hope we can help you to make an informed decision about your treatment plan.
