Lamdage22,

Well, first of all, I never said definitively that I have toxoplasmosis; I specifically said that I don't know if I have the disease. I think of having toxoplasmosis as a possibility in the same vein that I think it's possible that I might have some problem with the regulation of my dopamine system. And of course, nobody -- not any doctor, not anybody else -- knows if there's anything wrong with my dopamine system, yet I'm still prescribed a medication that modulate dopamine.

If my psychiatrist lets me get in a word about toxoplasmosis at my next appointment, I'll mention it and see what he has to say.

And I think that what you said about the "two compounds that prevent toxoplasmosis from getting vitamin b" being better than Haldol isn't entirely accurate. I thought I came across something saying that haloperidol was superior to the compounds in question as far as efficacy was concerned, but I can't locate the exact source at the moment.

I think that taking haloperidol would be like trying any other treatment that psychiatry has to offer. There's a chance that it might do some good, and there's also a chance that it might have some undesirable effects. Either way, I wouldn't know for sure whether haloperidol might be getting at the cause of some sort of disease process or if it might be helping in the same way an aspirin helps a headache.

And well, you probably have some idea as to how well that approach has been working for me. I actually did try to get a toxoplasmosis test once from another doctor, but the office turned me away and didn't even let me see the doctor. So, yeah, I'll see if my psychiatrist will let me get in a word about toxoplasmosis at my next appointment. I've already got a bunch of other things I want to talk to him about, and my psychiatrist doesn't give me much time to talk, but we'll see.
