    Hi there! Figured I'd introduce myself

    Hey everyone! I'm new here. I figured I'd introduce myself. I'm Michael. I don't really know what to say... lol. I'm pretty interested in psychopharmacology and find myself reading about it quite a lot for recreation. I'd like to become a pdoc one day, but I'm not sure I could hack it through...

    Taking PRN when drinking.

    I unfortunately live in supported living where my medication is administered by staff, I'm feeling really on edge and pissed of at the moment but because I've had four small beers they're refusing me my PRN because of it. Where do I stand? Can you take PRN if you've been drinking?

    My pdoc thinks I'm dissociating....

    So as the title says my pdoc thinks I'm dissociating. He mentioned something about it a while back but I didn't fully "take it on board". So at our most recent session, I asked him for an explanation of what he thinks is going on and he says I'm dissociating to protect myself. I'm really...

    Neuroleptics/Anti-P's on PRN?

    I've asked my Care-Co if he could possibly ask PDoc if I could take Anti-P's on PRN as an option. My Labels; ? Schizo-Affective Disorder ? Bipolar Disorder with Psychotic Features They can't make up their minds, they say definately one of the above. Some docs say Schizo-Affective, some...

    Everyone keeps talking about it on the Zopiclone thread and I haven't a clue what it means. :)
