I was wondering if they help. I was supposed to start my latuda months ago. Too scared. Of course. Sometimes I question do I need the help. I'm more anxious than depressed but my mood is always. .....eh
Anyone on antipsychotics? : I was... - Anxiety and Depre...
I am on Quetiapine; have been for nearly 4 years now. They have really helped stabilise my mood swings (with the exception of the odd blip here and there). Some side effects but they are much more manageable than the mood swings and far more predictable. If they have been prescribed for you then there is obviously a need. Try then under your physicians supervision and remember they probably wont work overnight.
It probably depends on your condition and symptoms but I take antipsychotics and it has done a world of good for me. If it is being suggested by professionals I'm sure that it is expected to be of great help and has been well thought through. I would recommend discussing any questions or concerns with your provider beforehand to ease any worries you may have about treatments.
