Got sectioned on 19th April 2018. Was allowed home only with a Community Treatment Order on 25th May 2018. RC put me on Paliperidone Palmitate 100mg. Went back to work on 28th May 2018. I have started to get terrible side effects. My prolactin levels have obviously risen. I spoke to my care coordinator today and spoke to a doctor in the CMH offices. I was told because I am on CTO I was legally required to have depot injections. I have complained about the depot medication and realise the only way to challenge the doctors choice of meds is to challenge the CTO and try to get discharged from it via a tribunal. If I fail to win the tribunal I have six months plus of severe breast pain, lack of periods, weight gain and general feeling awful. It is just awful but I am simply reminded I am not discharged from section 3 of the MHA and can be put back into the mental health hospital. I am waiting for blood test results and being contacted by Powher advocate and solicitor. I feel physically sick much worse than when I was hearing voices. Help!
