yes, i had therapy when i 1st started getting treatment. i do think it helped with my normal life problems then... it might help some now, but i dont think anything can replace what emotions i cant feel. ive been reading peoples experiences with antipsychotics.. they're scary. it seems only about 10 percent actually like them. but ive been looking at how you can become tolerant to the effects of them. i think the tolerance might benefit me, because thats when it upregulates/sensitizes the receptors so much it cant keep up with it. but then i see how people have suffered because of such an increase in prolactin the meds cause, and that you dont get tolerant to that effect of the med. i'd bet if drug companies down to business on side effects or long term side effects.. theyd make tons of money.
but my theory right now is that it took a little over a month for mirapex to cause anhedonia, which is like a side effect of becoming tolerant to it i guess.. so maybeeee it might take a little over a month to to become tolerant to an antipsychotic and the side effect would be very sensitive dopamine receptors. i think thats my doctors plan too.
i asked her if i start taking that and start to feel even less pleasure in my life if i should stop, she said no, i wish i'd asked more questions tho. im calling her monday. i havent even started the med yet tho.... altho i did start taking an old med, hydroxyzine, which is a very light d2 antagonist, i dont think ive felt any effect of it tho.
