I noticed there were a few new TD meds. Austedo I saw and Ingrezza. I have not tried either of these, but my doctor just called in Ingrezza for me. Does anyone have any experience in this drug? I have taken artane before, and artane(thrihexiphenidyl) was not bad, It worked was a little euphoric but it worked pretty well. As for cogentin, it seemed to have caused constipation, as it is very drying. Austedo I have never heard of, but i have heard of tetrabenzine too.
My problem before was mainly muscle stiffness as I was taking Trilafon(perphenazine.) But now it is more grimacing mouth, pharyngeal and facial problems. Almost like my mouth gets kind of moving and at the same time, tightens a bit. So I needed something to treat that. I have asked for benzodiazipines, but my doctor is very wary of giving those out.
I have tried Benadryl with more success than with most of the others. But it sometimes is more sedating than most, so I much rather avoid that because sometimes when I am way too sedated, I have a fear of passing out, or afraid that I might die, so therefore i have trouble breathing or feel as if I was having a heart attack. So I would rather avoid those feelings.
Has anyone had any success with Robaxin instead of the parkinsonian type meds, for muscle spasm or muscle tightness? It is much more of a good drug for the minor fibromyalgia type muscle spasms.
What are the overall best (atypical) antipsychotics for Depression, Anxiety, Agitation, OCD, Bipolar...?By Adolf
"Best" as in being effective with fewer side effects. Which ones were the best for you? Which ones did you take? What condition(s) did you treat? What side effects did you get? How did the antipsychotics compare to "conventional" antidepressants?
Can antipsychotics be an alternative to "conventional" antidepressants? What are the risks? What are the benefits? Do they make you a tomato with time? Psychiatrists prescribe them more often in recent times, it seems.
I had a terrible manic/psychotic episode last August, and I'm having a great deal of difficulty letting go of certain elements of the experience. I keep being gripped with the feeling I've made a terrible mistake of some kind that's going to result in something bad, but other times I'm able to reassure myself that's not the case. What's really bad is when i start to argue with myself internally about it, which can make me panicky. I do take Depakote and Zyprexa, so it's not like I'm not taking my meds. Has anyone else had this kind of trouble? I thought about posting this in OCD but it seemed more relevant here.
Sometimes out of the blue I get this feeling that I did something wrong and people will come to get me, because of this. Then I keep on reviewing what I did throughout the day and see that I did not do anything wrong. What causes this? Is this ocd or paranoia? How to prevent/deal/improve with this?
