I am currently dealing with my schizoaffective disorder by taking 33% less of my antipsychotic.
My doctor and I are working together on this medication reduction, and I do feel a hint of more energy – 33% more – which means that I can do 1-2 more things a day on a ‘good’ day.
It’s still pretty pathetic… not being able to have good personal hygiene, as well as, do my chores!
It also remains difficult to find clarity, but I have found a bit more.
I think I was over medicated prior to this change!
And, all that I can do is put that behind me now, knowing that I am no longer over medicated.
So, as always, I’m taking my life a day at a time!
As well, I am experiencing psychosis in a slightly increased fashion, which is to be expected.
My job now is to learn optimal ways of coping!
Have you had any recent changes to your treatment plan, and how are you dealing with them?
