After giving him a very good report, he said, “ok, now we have to try it without your other medicines”.
I was sooooo happy to hear that the first one to eliminate was the Risperdal. It did save my life back in 2008 but I want more out of life than just not hearing voices. I want to live again and the past week I have really started living again.
More social, more well balanced, less vices, a better feeling of well being.
The Risperdal has so many side effects I am really looking forward to tonight when I go to be and increase the Clozapine to 75 mg from 50 and not take the Risperdal. Next will be the Latuda to go and then the anti-anxiety medications I now take.
I have had such high hopes for this medicine to be the answer to so many things. I don’t even mind the weekly blood tests ha ha!
Thanksgiving starts tomorrow for our family, with a pre Thanksgiving dinner I make then to my sisters on Thursday for a larger gathering.
Sneak in a few visits to my dad and it will be a perfect Thanksgiving except for my daughter being away.
Can’t have it all but what I do have is pretty awesome…
