Clopixol 300mg.... They inject it in to me every two weeks... And nobody has really explained what it does.. Or is supposed to do for me.. And I'm really bad at asking questions.. Whenever they ask.. I just lie and say I'm fine.. It avoids getting into a long painful conversation.. I'm bad at asking for help to...

So...Clopixol 300mg ??? What's it for ? Is it allot ? I've tried looking it up on-line.. But I don't really understand the large blocks of medical text..

Anybody heard of it ? I'm written up as bi-polar.. Do you think that crap will help ? I've gotten very suspicious of it just lately.. To the point of paranoia.. I'm beginning to think its doing me more harm than good...

Any light you can shed on it would be greatly appreciated.. Thanks

Hi Zardos, it's a typical antipsychotic. It should be able to help with your paranoia &/or psychosis..

Last year I was hospitalized due to bipolar mania with (strong) psychotic features. I stayed 1 month and a half and I was given clopixol injection quite early since 20mg of zyprexa+haloperidol injections twice a day+8mg lorazepam could not calm me down. Then the doctors insisted that I should continue with clopixol as a maintenace therapy for quite some time, but I did not agree since I don't like the approach of injecting psychiatric medications. So I went to another psychiatrist who took me off clopixol after 2 months.

It also goes by the name Zuclopenthixol if that helps you find more information on the internet.

When you lie and say you're fine how are you really doing?

Thanks allot for the replies guys.. I'm still 'in two minds' about it.. I love that expression... 'two' minds... Does rather suppose there's not three of us at the time (which has happened) :rofl2:

When you lie and say you're fine how are you really doing?
not good at the moment.. Its the mornings that get to me most.. I freak out almost every morning.. I shake like a junky.. I've had panic attacks.. As soon as I get up I take a bunch of pills right away and just try and ride it out until dinner time... When I told my shrink he just ignored me.. The hospital is still pissed at me cos last time I was in I smashed the place up with a hammer.. Wasn't my fault.. I wasn't in my right mind at the time...

Anyway the last time I saw him I told him as much as I could about my lack of sleep and the killer mornings I was having.. But he just brushed it off and used the phrase 'an even keel' and told me to come back in six months... He seems to think that if I'm not having a full on meltdown that I'm okay.. Doesn't seem to matter I'm suffering...
And when I saw my doctor (which is almost impossible these days) he just upped my Propranolol and told me to give it a month......

I just feel so ill in the mornings... The shakes.. The panic.. I've given up Codeine altogether.. I thought it mite of been seeping out of my system as I slept.. And it was withdrawal I was feeling in the morning.. That's what it feels like in the mornings... Like its some kind of withdrawal or side effect...
I've even tried going for walks to get myself going.. Half hour walk every morning.. I've lost weight.. Lost some of my belly.. But still feel messed up. I'm trying to take positive steps.. But I don't really know what I'm fighting...
