Stelazine (Trifluoperazine) sucks!

Has anybody else had a negative experience with Trifluoperazine? When I was on it I couldn't concentrate or remember things from the short term. I was obsessive and aggressive too. I always wanted to sleep. Stupid drug ruined 6 months of my life

I was on stelazine for only a short time, as it caused muscle rigidity. I was only on a relatively low dose at the time, so it was easy to change medications.
