Hi, I have been experiencing hallucinations and delusions for the past 10 years now (diagnosed bipolar 1 with psychotic features at age 16). I have been on all of the meds possible to try and control the symptoms but have never had much luck. I am at my last straw now for treatment, I’m at the point where the medication destroys my life as much as the psychosis because of side effects. My treatment providers say that I am never allowed to be off meds but I am determined to find other solutions that hopefully work. I started yoga several months ago and have found that to be helpful plus having a healthy diet but it’s still not enough. Does anyone have any suggestions on managing this illness with no, or limited, medication? I am so fed up with the horrible side effects and no results.
