Bedsides the ones for side effects. That means no antipsychotics or mood stabilizer. Iím going to try therapy. There are no meds I havenít or wonít react to is why. Plus I still have TD.

Oo I hope that works. Back in 2000 I went off everything because I was on opiates for physical issues and didnít want to mix the two. Surprisingly things evened out and I was relatively stable. Then after my back surgery in 2013 or so I slipped into a severe depression, but it wasnít until that turned into a mixed episode I sought help. Iím now on only one AP. Less meds than Iíve ever been on since the 80ís and doing well. I hope you have the same luck.

I hope the TD goes away now. Are you worried about going off those meds? What meds are you still on?

I hope therapy helps you.

Only slept from 4:30 to 7 last night. Was up all night online. Already been through finding a decent sleep med for me and of course they failed from side effects! And of course itís Saturday so Pdoc isnít around and neither is my case manager. I hate to just try to nap later because Iíll be all turned upside down any worse than I am right now. There is the after hours line but they can only report to your Pdoc or tell you if you need to go to the ER or not.

I feel antsy. Nobody is around to talk or visit with. Iíve been listening to the same cd over and over again. Well thereís my cat but she wants petted and fed all the time. I think Iíll explode with this energy! Iím trying to fold and put away my clean laundry- trying is the operative word!

Did you and your doc have a plan for what to do if you start getting manic? Might be good to implement it, or come up with one quickly

No we donít have one of those especially manic without meds! I can always call the crisis team if things get really bad.

@Moose72

Sorry your sleep has been shyt and you're manic feeling and antsy. Try a rest period. Put on your headphones or put in your ear buds and just lay in bed, in as dark and cool as you can make it, and listen to music. Helps me to take a rest period when I'm feeling that way.

I hope you feel better soon. 🫂 ❤️

It sucks you have such bad reactions to seemingly all antipsychotics. Are the command hallucinations very bad? I hope they're not. You can try listening to your radio without headphones, yes. Just try taking a rest period, hun.

Yes all antipsychotics. Iíve tried the vast majority of them. The command hallucinations are always the same but they still are annoying. Got my iPad playing 101.5 The River.
