Nah I am a free man, they haven't built a mental health unit that can hold me for longer than a cagouple of sleeps. It was ok, except for 4 smokes a day

Back home, hallucinations disappeared for a few days after the depot but came back this weekend, think I've become treatment resistant to Flupentixhol, either that or my attempts to make the ego a servant rather than master through meditation may be making it hit me with a lot of makkyo, I may have to quit meditating for a while to test the waters. Take care and thank you all for the support while I was in hospital you lovely people. X. :).

Flupentixol is quite an old medication. You might have success with a more modern atypical antipsychotic (e.g. Olanzapine or Aripiprazole).

@On Fire, I was on Risperidone for 12 years until I became resistant to it, Olanzapine doesn't work on me at all, been on it twice, My Psych Doc doesn't think Ariprazole would work on someone with a 20+ years history of Schizophrenia, I'm going to push for Clozapine next time I speak to my Psych Doc, I was on it for a couple of months and it worked well but I was still drinking heavily then and you do that on Clozapine you will pee yourself in your sleep. which happened and I stopped taking it and went on Flupentixhol.

No hallucinations again today despite me going out without my headphones on, I can feel my depression lurking in the corners of my mind waiting to catch me unawares, took my sertraline this morning and some prn diazepam this afternoon but it hasn't made much difference.
