They really make me lethargic (all slow and hardly responsive) and I also heard they cause brain damage. Is the latter true?
I'm talking about the anti-psychotics.
So far I've gone on geodon, then risperdal (which I stopped taking completely).
From what I understands it takes a while for your body to get used to it, you have'nt said what your are taking now, but I know my son on serequel it took ages to get past that stage. The early mornings are still slow, low motivation but is it improving.
Check with your Dr about what to expect.
Yeah I have been on a lot of these too. It got to the point where I would only take them at night. Geodon made me so lethargic, I slept all night and day and had to be taken off. I have found that taking Seroquel at betime was the best thing I did. By morning the lethargy had worn off.
