Hi everyone. I'm reaching out to the forum again as this is what I tend to do when I'm finding things tough.
The issue I've got is the side effects of my medication. I'm suffering from crippling muscle stiffness in my legs as a result of my anti psychotic medication. It's getting to a point where I cannot walk for long distances and my legs are always stiff and really sore. In comparison to how I was before I had my medication I'm obviously a lot better mentally but physically I'm absolutely done in and I'm in bed for 8 most nights leaving very little time for any sort of relationship with my partner. However, my main issue is my legs and I have heard there is a tablet that psychiatrists can prescribe to counteract the side effects to anti psychotic medication such as muscle soreness and stiffness. Does anyone have any experience of this?
I have an appointment with my psychiatrist on Monday and I'm going to ask him to maybe prescribe me something for this issue as quite honestly it is getting in the way of my recovery xx please help xx
