I am soooo sorry for your stresses and pain. I do understand. (more than you can imagine).
Never apologize for speaking truth here. This is your “safe zone”… this site!!!
I know you are suffering… I also know your son is also suffering.
When your loved one has Schizophrenia and the torment rages in his mind. (Its a “family” thing)
EVERYONE SUFFERS with it.
I now know and have enough insight that I know my parents suffered with fear and helplessness. Watching me suffer in such a tormented way. We all were in such pain back then. Life was a BATTLE. the fights and the arguing seemed to NEVER end.
As for meds? I can suggest a few. (that i was on when my mind cleared)
- Invega (once a month injection) or (Risperdal injection) --Every two weeks injection.
They put me on the Invega after the Risperdal That was the drug i was on AFTER the risperdal injection. Invega was the drug that WORKED!!!
- ABILIFY!!! (the miracle drug)
- Ambien (Sleep)
And that is the “MIRACLE” that worked for me. Feb 25, 2010 …i just came back into clarity.
Hope this helps someone out there!!!
Good Luck…and God Bless you all!!!
PS…it took MONTHS for the med’s to work. It wasn’t an INSTANT cure. I had to take the injection for months. Then within 5 days of the ABILIFY, my mind had cleared. It took about 7-8 months, till my brain would …“clear”…and life could resume.
