    Hi Shayna!

    I take the Zoloft for breakthrough nausea - the under the tongue, dissolvable. Works well enough.

    @Cash, glad that works for you.

    I thought Zoloft was an antidepressant?
    There are givers and takers. The takers eat better. But the givers sleep better.

    @DrWho. Pretty much most drugs have either dangerous or unknown long-term health implications, especially ones such as anti-psychotics, but you weigh this against how much more dangerous it is to your health to be an untreated psychotic patient. Sure, I agree that there are absolutely some nasty side effects and long-term dangers, but if I don't take my olanzapine, I try to kill myself, I try to kill other people, and it is only with extreme luck and intervention from others, combined with these dangerous drugs that ensured neither of these things ever happened.

    As with most things, it is a calculated risk, usually worth taking, though I reserve this opinion specifically for the treatment of psychotic disorders. However, I think off-label use of anti-psychotics for things like insomnia or anxiety is down-right stupid when you consider the long-term effects.

    i flushed half the doctors script of Lexapro, told him his nurse should of never tried to experiment with me on my last visit and give it to me, which the new Doctor replacing my old gave me a hard time that i was on X@n@x and Lexapro, i was like the lexapro was recently added, i dont need it. The Doc was unsure and unclear, the new one so recommended i see a Pysch> I got freaked out cause of the nursses bad judgement about putting me on Lexapro, which 3 months ago I had no idea about AD's or Lexapro, i was just X@n@x for work and whatever else that streses me out

    exercise,water, ginger green tea, cardio, i want to get back to 2mg X@NZ and with klonopin for 30days to help with the tapper down, if the new GP (Primary Care) doesn't refill my script for x@nz, the extra's i have will cause me to go into a hard tapper down and save what I got til i get the motivation to find a new GP or Health Care provider, after 9yrs with the same practice, the old Doc retires and new one comes in making it more difficult.

    Speaking from personal experience, yes, there are absolutely some very dangerous side-effects of long-term anti-psychotic use.

    I've been on olanzapine for many years, as well as aripriprazole, risperidone, quetiapine, and haloperidol amongst many, many others.

    These have been proven to cause a number of side-effects with long-term use, including; parkinsonism, akathisia,dystonia and Parkinson disease.

    Some of these can be counter-balanced by prescription of procyclidine, which I take 3 times a day. It doesn't always work perfectly, but it is better than nothing.

    I'm honestly terrified one day I will develop one or more of these side-effects, and as such, I hope I can come off the anti-psychotics eventually, though with class II paranoid schizophrenia, I'm not so sure that will happen.
