I have had the medication upped to 1.5mgs now. Hopefully it is enough.
Anyway, I can keep updating in this thread. As long as I don't spread my thoughts about this into every post I make then I don't think the obsession has completely taken hold.

I'm aware of them of course because it's my arm/hand that's moving involuntarily, hehe. But I usually get them when tired and right before bed. For him to notice, I would literally need to lay my arm across him or something and just say "Watch".
Geez. Injection? No wonder it was bad. I wonder if it did what it was meant to do for you?oscilor wrote:I take a low dose of stelazine, which, like haloperidol, acts by blocking dopamine receptors. I find it quite useful when I am obsessing too much, but it is by no means a cure. I was on high dose haloperidol, administered by depot injection, for about 3 years and it was baaad! At a high dose or with prolonged use, there is risk of movement disorders or you seize up and can't function well at all. I was an agitatied zombie on a high dose haloperidol, but on a low dose, I quite like such drugs.

I have thought that maybe we all have the same amount of dopamine but it gets caught up and re-used in the different places at different times and so we get this effect of different mental illnesses and conditions.
