I've a friend taking that for schizophrenia, it helps them manage their condition. seems like far too harsh a drug for SA. Where did you hear about that? That's a weird drug for a GP to prescribe.
Is this by a consultant psychiatrist or a GP? Maybe get a second opinion?
They gave me a similar antipsychotic for migraine at low dose and my god did I feel weird and doped up! Cant say how it affected my SA, I was too busy feeling sick, having palpitations and could barely stay awake!
Yes, my psychiatrist prescribed it to me. That was around a year ago. I've had a weird experience with it. I'm too slow and lethargic to FEEL anxious but I'm too in my own world, which in turn make me...well, feel a lot of things. I definitely think it was the wrong drug to give me. I'm kind of hooked on feeling apathetic and dull. To me, it's better than having heightened sensations and feeling anxious all the time. I can go to classes now and give eye contact and do normal grown-up things, but I can't perform as well as I used to in classes because my thinking is too slow. Can't sing because my voice lost its "omph" and can't paint or play piano because I'm just not that creative anymore. It's off-label use can be treating anxiety. So I guess that's what my psychiatrist had in mind. I would like to go on anti-depressants though, something more "appropriate" for SA.
