Antipsychotic Overview

Antipsychotics, also known as neuroleptics,[1] are a class of psychotropic medication primarily used to manage psychosis (including delusions, hallucinations, paranoia or disordered thought), principally in schizophrenia but also in a range of other psychotic disorders.[2] They are also the mainstay together with mood stabilizers in the treatment of bipolar disorder.[3] Recent research has shown that use of any antipsychotic results in smaller b...

Rexulti and worsening depression

I have been taking .5 milligrams or Rexulti once a day for 2 weeks. My depression seems to be getting worse. Any thoughts? ## Rexulti is an antipsychotic, and it has been known to cause worsening depression, and other mood changes, as side effects, in some people that take it. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, and weight changes. Please inform your doctor of what you're experiencing, since this might not be the right medication for you. Are you on any other medications?

Yellow round pill with 5 on one side

A 26 year old male, previous drug abuser (don't know what drugs) was admitted to a psychiatric unit for over a month, tried to commit suicide, jumped off a bridge, but survived, is now into going to the gym big time and protein drinks. He has an obnoxious attitude, dirty bedroom, keeps himself clean, very bolshie and verbal if confronted by his elderly parents. He panicked at the potential loss of 41 pale yellow tablets (with 5 on one side and nothing on the other) when I cleaned his room. The tablets were in a plastic sandwich bag which he claimed were his quetiapine prescribed meds, but I don't think so. Can anyone help identify them? ## These are 5mg generic valium tablets. Valium is a trademarked name the drug known as diazepam. The chemical/drug "Diazepam" (pronounc...

Recovering from Invega

In April 2020 I was put on a community treatment order depot shot of Invega every 4 weeks for roughly 6 months after a month long episode/hospitalisation of drug induced psychosis. I suffered from EXTREME depression, anhedonia, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, inability to function or stand up for long periods of time. After roughly 6/7 months of being OFF the medication I am starting to return to my old self, feeling much more optimistic about life and find myself laughing again (still have the inability to fully cry) but it’s no where near as bad as it once was. This medication is toxic and I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone, but if you are someone who has been experiencing ill effects, just know that it IS possible to get better. I promised myself if I ever got out of the hell I w...

Fluoxetine with Promazine

I've just started taking Fluoxetine (& was previously taking Mirtazapine), with Promazine alongside. I would like to know about any drug interactions between taking Fluoxetine & Promazine at the same time. I took it today & felt almost dazed & hazy as if my head was in the clouds. Is this caused by a drug interaction between the two or is this normal & something that will wear off with time? ## It appears that there is a potential for moderate interactions between these drugs. Fluoxetine may increase the effects of Promazine. You may need more frequent monitoring by your doctor and dose adjustments to safely use both drugs together. Let your doctor if your condition changes or you experience increased side effects. Ref: Drugs.com Interaction Report

Diet supplements and mental health medication interactions

Can I take diet supplements while I'm taking mental health meds such as latuda, buspirone, doxepin and aripiprazole? ## Hello, Bobby! How are you? It really depends on what supplements you want to take, some are safe, according to FDA reports, and some are not. Can you please post back with more details? The NIH warns that some supplements can cause a possibly dangerous condition called Serotonin Syndrome, when mixed with some supplements and herbal products, this condition has been known to be fatal, in some cases. ## Oh please talk to your doctor. Those are some heavy duty meds and any supplements that affect dopamine will probably be problematic.

Coming off Invega Sustenna

Hi, I was given Invega Sustenna at 100mg a month for 10 months since Dec 5th. My last shot was on August 29th 2013. The medication gave me severe anhedonia and I have lost the motivation and willpower to do anything. I can no longer experience joy, happiness, or pleasure from anything I do and I have no interest in doing anything. I constantly feel restless and uneasy and I just can't shake this feeling away no matter what. All of these started about a week after my first IV. I have been off this medication for almost 3 months now and I have yet to feel any improvements. I have read that it has a long half life of 25-49 days and that it can stay in your body for 300 days. So does that mean I will have to wait a year to start feeling better? Any info on someone who has been off this ...

started on seroquel for alcohol addiction

I was 1st prescribed seroquel when I entered treatment for alcohol addiction, anxiety, and depression. I am proud to say I am now 5-1/5 years sober and wondering if or why I still need to be on this medicine. I take 100mg @ night along w/ 50mg of Zoloft. My biggest concern is if I will ever get to sleep w/o aid ## If you've been taking them for years, actually even if you've just been taking one of them for years, then the best way to stop taking them would be to do a slow taper. Otherwise, they tend to cause rebound effects, so you may experience symptoms such as severe depression, insomnia, irritability and etc. Learn more Seroquel details here. Learn more Zoloft details here. If you do it that way, then there will most likely be a brief period of insomnia and some other mild ...
