It's 2:23 am in Chicago and this is my second night with interrupted sleep. Recently, I switched up my cocktail plus psychiatric nurse. I was on: Seroquel 800 mg Lamotrigine 200 carbmazepine 200 Wellburtin and Duloxtien. I switched physchiatrist because of my schedule plus I wanted off on seroquel. Part of the reason I wanted off seroquel is because I'm 163 and was 130. I'm 5'3. I blame myself for the weight gain. My said that I'm really bitchy on seroquel. I got scared he'll leave me. So this gave me more reason get off seroquel. I was put on latuda took 20 for a week 40 a week by 60 a week. I had to go to the emergency room to get a HUGE HUGE shot for tardive dyskinesia. I'm scared because the TD maybe permanent. I have experienced boughts of 10 minute TD symptoms. My PN said he may have a medication to help me. So my PN took me off all my meds was on practically. My body is withdrawing BAD BAD!!!! I took an LOA from work. Dealing with tardive dyskinesia is devastating BUT it could be worse. I was in so much pain because it felt like someone was pulling on my face and jaw. Has anyone else experienced TD?? I'm now on risperdal which I've been on 2 weeks and I'm lactating because of this med. My PN said not to worry. I'm off work until the 18th. I'm frustrated about TD I CAN'T sleep. I'm really thinking about going on disability but my boyfriend is against it. I'm depressed I feel.alone. I want yhe withdrawals and mania to stop. Is anyone on risperdal what's your experience?? tired
