Son 25 been on paliperidone depot 150mg now for 9 months .
Its sure helped a lot of the issues but its quite erratic, well Im thinking its the medication thats erratic.
He is currently walking around his room as he does a lot (room as in 10ft by 8ft) and a bed and closet in there, so floor space is minimal so I still hear him walking, then the odd time theres a thump, means he is kicking out at something with a foot.
This is getting worse . He actually has just got out bed and he is doing it right away atm.
We spoke to his nurse y,day who is going to arrange a review with the psychiatrist. He also seems a bit slower, reactions are slower, I often have to repeat things.
Im scared the depot is doing more damage than good right now.
The pacing issue has always been there since the depot but right now its worse.
Also the room will be dark, he will walk around in his hoody, if he gets the chance to close all the other doors upstairs he will and I,ll have to put the light on when i go up there.
Has anyone anything similar, I have no idea what is causing this right now.
maybe meds are too high . Thanks for reading.
