I am NOT going off my meds but I am getting really frustrated here

I was doing alright with just some paranoia I was having trouble controlling. My doctor added a new medication to help with it and after 3 weeks the side effects were some bad she said I could stop it. Now the paranoia is way worse than it ever was. I don't like to get into details about what I am thinking because I don't like how crazy it makes me sound. I am supposed to see an old friend tomorrow that I got back in touch with after I got most of my symptoms under control but now I know they are going to see me and think I am sick again.

I am also starting to wonder about this whole cognitive imparment BS. I don't think it is the illness making me have a harder time learning and thinking, it is all these meds! I am just a chemically altered mess that does not even resemble anyone I know.

I've been like that Notalwaysnever

am still sometimes but I found that it made a big difference
getting the right meds
which surprised me because I was very anti meds
and didn't realise how differently they can affect me

it wasn't easy going through the trial and error

I hope you have some support around you

I have been playing the trial and error game a long time. My symptoms just keep changing, i was hospitalized 20 years ago for depression and now it is schizophrenia I have been on almost everything out there, had all the side effects. It is just getting old

I have massive doubts about the benefits of medication. I genuinely feel they impair my ability to think clearly and have created the emptiness I feel inside. I feel I have to battle every day just to get a grip on reality because my mind is so dumbed down.

in that case Notalways never
you might need other therapies as well
some sort of talking therapy , group therapy
or activities that you find beneficial

you are right , medication doesn't always work on its own
without other help

I think talking about it, might help, since it makes you re-evaluate your stance around some assumptions, the moment you “expose” yourself to others
