I want to stop my meds. Something's happening to me. It's probably invega withdrawal symptoms, but it's very uncomfortable. It's probably anxiety. I feel nausea.

In the morning i feel like i woke up from how you wake up in insomnia, not rested, but i sleep 10 hours every day. When i wake up i have racing thoughts about my past, i stay in bed depressed for an hour or so, then i become hypomanic, i feel a lot of energy as if i need to do something and then 3-5 hours after that i get depressed again, my energy crashes and i stay in bed. I am having mood swings in this pattern every day. I took 1 dose of lamictal and didn't experience the mood swings today but i don't want to take it anymore because i want to switch to clozapine. If i take clozapine i might not be prescribed any other medicine. My psychiatrist's appointment isn't going to be till 2 weeks (she doesn't have availability before that). I don't understand what to do during this time. Most uncomfortable feeling is waking up in the morning with racing thoughts and a sinking feeling.

I want to die. I urgently need to be on clozapine what do i do?
