I take meds three times a day. I take 4 pills at 7:30 am, 3 pills at 3:00 pm and 14 pills at 9:00 pm.
They are prescribed for several issues including, anxiety, schizophrenia, OCD and depression.
The side effects are: weight gain, slurred speech, sensitivity to the sun, drooling, headaches and irregular heartbeat.
having an irregular heartbeat can be really scary. I get random palpitations. I feel like i am having a heart attack.
Drooling is embarrassing.
Weight gain sux.
When i speak people say i have to repeat myself because i slur.
I often consider going off my medication, but my Dr and parents say i shouldn’t, or, i will end up back in the psych ward…my favorite place. (not)
