I’m so sorry to hear about your son. This is what i mean about these meds, actually ANY MEDS. Nothing in life is free and nothing comes without a price.
We are all reduced @ some point to choose and hopefully choose the lesser of 2 evils.
I have always been anti-med, always just suffered thru various ailments, how I was raised. However, sz is a different animal, and I’m finding myself @ the mercy of these AP poisons. My son is doing well on 10mg of Zyprexa, but even that doesn’t come without a price, with development of diabetes being one of the main side effects.
I’m so scared. You take into account some of these side effects, and also if what they say is true about people with sz having a much shorter life span, I’m pretty much freaking out.
I will never get “comfortable” with my son being used as a guina pig for multiple varieties of AP meds. I will always be in agony about what my son is putting into his body. But I have no other choice
