Is it normal for antipsychotic medication to cause twitching? I'm on Seroquel. I have occasional twitches, but today I've had lots, as well as flat emotions and difficulty making facial expressions.

life span

Do people with mental illness live about as long as people without mental illness, or is our life span shorter? I've had problems with suicidle feelings, so I wonder about that sometimes. Can antipsychotic medication potentially shorten one's life? Not that I'm planning on committing suicide. I've been much better the past few months. I just wonder.

Hey I actually feel normal here: other people have had emotional and mental problems very similar to mine, and I've done some pretty outrageous things, so I guess I felt very lonely. Has anyone else here crawled around a table like a dog screaming out "prophecies"? I did that when I was going through my "I'm a prophet" delusion....I also thought I was a reincarnated alien at one time. Freaked my grandma out bad I ...

Don't look them in the EYES!

Hi, I'm James


I am James. I have not yet been diagnosed by my psychiatrist, but after reading about it, I suspect that I probably have shizoaffective disorder (bipolar -- mixed, in particular). I've been in a Behavorial Hospital twice for a short length of time each time. The first time they diagnosed me with Major Depression, the second time, Major Depression with Psychosis. They say I don't have a psychotic disorder, but I highly doubt that ...

Your opinion...anxiety, maybe something else?

What up y'all? I need everybody's opinion on this. I think I have been experiencing symptoms of GAD or social anxiety for many years now. When around other people I often feel uneasy, like people are paying attention to me (although I know this is not true); it is just an unpleasant feeling that I can't shrug off. For instance, I could be walking down the street, and a stranger is approaching my direction, just ...

Mood swings

Any good medicine for mood swings.
If your gonna state antidepressants, any in particular.

I dont want any drowsiness or sleepy side effects.
Otherwise I may as well use sleeping pills and not be awake for the day.
How about herbal remedies?
apart from st johns wort.
