Hello! I am new, and am unclear of my diagnosis being schizoaffective or bipolar with psychotic features. Though due to this being a question on anti-psychotics and mood stabilizers, I decided to post here.
List on medication I have taken, with effects it gave **note: I am sensitive to medication**:
Prozac - Caused psychosis, and manic like symptoms
Risperdole - Weight gain, depression
Seroquel - Not sure of the name, but my arm would fling by itself and my teeth would grind
Sulfa -Sedation, maxed out
Latuda - Aneroxic symptoms after 5 months
Klonopin - Memory loss, tolerance built
Lithium - Maxed out my limit at 1800mlg daily, daily vomiting
Abilify - vomiting
Geodon - maxed it out
Zoloft - Manic like symptoms
Trazedon - Depression and suicidal behavior, maxed medication out
lamictal - Was not strong enough, no change 6 months after taking
Zyprexa - (as PRN) It does not work for enough time, does not last and causes me to knock out for hours.
Are there any other medications to try? I am getting desperate concerning the psychosis has to be pointed out by other people as "not actually there" now, and I have been unable to attend school for the past week due to staying up till 4-5 am unmedicated unable to wake up till around 1pm. This is a problem as I am in high school, it is becoming a hassle, along with having teachers call me out in class for putting the wrong year (ex: 2016) on multiple assignments and in some cases being unable to form a proper sentence during writing in school assignments.
Any medication that has worked for anyone else?
