In my experience, you take the medications anyway.
I am still very symptomatic, and life is quite a challenge for me.
I won’t get into a lot of detail regarding my symptoms, but I can tell you that many of my symptoms are classic schizophrenia symptoms.
There isn’t much left to the imagination where my mental health is concerned.
I only wish, that after trying a half dozen medications, I had greater relief.
And, while it’s true that I haven’t gone to a second line of defense medication (i.e. clozapine), I have been doing all I can at present, to make things manageable as they are.
What are some of your experiences with trying numerous psychiatric medications?
