Thoughts from a broken mind
Hello readers, thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to read this!
This is my journey down the road to “normal” I only hope that this Latuda will be the last medication change I need.
Some back story:
So as always my journey starts at Westmoreland Hospital when, the worst physic doctor, Dr Hai Wei Wang, takes me off Haldol and puts me on Latuda. Why am I on physic medications you may ask, well the answer to that can be found on the My Mental Issues page.
So this story begins with Lauren, my case manger, and myself in my Physic Doc’s office. I had really prepared to communicate my desire to be placed back on Clozaril.
Farther back story: I was on Clozaril before I wrecked my car about two-ish years ago. It work well and I was excited to be on it, however, once I wrecked my car and no longer had transportation to the clinic, I could no longer be on it. Which was tragic in two ways i lost the medication that worked and the withdraw was terrible.
So there I sat with my case manager, a letter form Sarah Benson, the best therapist I have ever had, saying that she agreed with me on Clozaril being the best medication for me. And my well thought out speech about how I waited like the doctor wanted, tried the Haldol, and even lost the weight to show the doc that I would not gain more weight while being on Clozaril.
So what happens Dr Wang, does not even look at the letter, nor does she listen to my case manager and takes me off of Haldol and puts me on this Latuda.
Ok now that you are all cough up, I took my first dose of Latuda on March 20th 2012.
I will post that I see & feel daily for about a month maybe longer then my posts will go to every week. I hope this goes well and works but am not holding my breath.
Over all I seen it as no different the anything else I was on. But check out my past and today’s logs and make up your own mind.
