Stops me from hearing things. No side effects.
Working / Worked
Has been working for the most part for the last 10 years. Sometimes still have auditory hallucinations, especially if there's something with a lot of stress going on. Having a lot of them constantly I sometimes refer to as "breaking through the medication" Had to reduce the meds by 2 mg because my eye started to have a twitch and I started to have a problem with drooling in public and because I found the dose still sedating.

Took 3 mg. It effectively treated my psychotic features, but I kept gaining weight on it. I think it dumbed me down a good bit too.
