I got diagnosed with some minor mental issue by a private psychiatrist in 2001 and started to give me low doses of antipsychotic such as as solian, risperdol etc. i didn't think i have a mental illness myself at the time. i only felt i experienced some side effects associated with taking these pills, such as loss of sexual ability etc. it was until jan2014 i had an episode of psychosis that i felt quite serious. in that incident, i was sitting in the office and suddenly i saw text from the computer screen flooding into my eyes, then there was a loud screaming sound, and parts of the screen grew into a golden bubble, then i felt i lost control of my mind as i was going insane. i immediately tried to gain control of myself and left the office to head home to rest. i managed to be able to pay the taxi driver and open door at home. after waking up, i felt normal again. the psychiatrist told me that was psychosis and the reason i had that experience was because i wasnt taking an enough dose of pill. so he upped my pill to 80mg zeldox. i lost job a few times, and during a 2 year period, i would suddenly feel anxiety and loose control of myself. so the doctor upped the dosage to maximum doze. At that level, i didn't experience anxiety or loss of control anymore, but it had an impact on my heart. So the psychiatrist changed it to a low dose of olanzapine. I didnt feel any side effects - no more fluctuations of saliva, tremping hands, insomnia or anxiety. along with the treatment, i took fishoil pill and vitamin b. i suspect these health pills are helping me to get better. it has been 1 year since i didnt experience loss of control of mind. i feel well. i hope my experience help someone reading this.
