So basically I refuse to take the dose of quetiapine I'm supposed to take due to weight gain. I also take lithium. Clonazepam prn
Now added this stelazine....
It's pretty much discontinued apart from liquid form... I'm taking 1mg...increasing to 2mg..it's pretty old stuff

Anyone? Experiences?

I was taking 10mgs for a couple of years. It was good for psychotic symptoms and apart from a bit of tiredness, I didn't have any side effects.It is still available in 5mg tablets although not all pharmacists stock them.

I was put on stelazine about 15 years ago and also had it injected. It stopped my psychosis pretty effectively.

These sound great and super-exciting. Can they be obtained in a sucky mint version?
