Shouldn't drink it makes me relapse sometimes. Hopefully won't relapse or will have to take zopiclone and diazepam. This sucks being stuck on meds and whats worse is my medication regimen is changing from injections to pills. Clozapine. This schizophrenia sucks big time. It's slowly driving me madder.

I can't begin to tell you how bad drinking is for schizophrenia, it's the same as illicit drugs, you should stay as far away from them as possible.

They all react with the medication and makes voices much worse, mine thrived on cannabis and I'll never use it again.

Do not drink it will make you relapse. I know from my own demons of drinking-Please stay sober. The other drugs are not going to fix it. just make it worst. I take valium so I know a little of what you are going through as I just drank a little myself tonight and it is scary. Lots of love

Hello there,
Relapse is a huge word, which means differ to different people.
For example, being angry could make you hallucinate.
But if you feel the medicate is not for you, have you thought of discussing with your GP with a different approach like holistic support like counseling, yoga,
Talking about how u feel can get stuff off ur chest.
Remember ur not alone.
