> Why did you start taking medication in the first place?

I have something wrong with me. Depression and (social) anxiety.

> Do you experience depression or anxiety? Currently? At what age did these things first emerge? What came first - anxiety or depression?

Yes. At the age of 4 or 3. My parents divorced at age 5.

> Do you have a history of childhood abuse or neglect?

Yes both.

> Can you describe in detail what you experienced when you were psychotic?

My father doesnt want me to find out what he did to me and he rather wants to lock me away. That was the first psychosis.

> Besides Nardil, what else were you taking when you became psychotic?

Mostly neuroleptics.

> How long were you treated with Nardil before you became psychotic?

4-5 weeks.

> How long did the psychosis last for?

Not very long 1-2 months. I was on Nardil several times.

> Were you given antipsychotics to treat the psychosis? Which ones? How long did they take to work?

They worked immediately except once where i withdrew them apruptly. There it took 3 months.

> There is a type of bipolar illness that presents as chronic depression except for episodes of mania that are brought on by antidepressants. (See DSM 5).

> If you don't have psychosis, then why do you continue to take two antipsychotics? (Of course, it might be that you haven't had a relapse into psychosis precisely because you continue to take antipsychotics).

Thats possible but the opposite is also possible. I take them because i got used to them.

> Why is one antipsychotic not sufficient to treat your illness currently?

Because i was treated too aggressively after the last psychosis made by Parnate.

> These are just some of the questions that your doctors should be asking themselves.
>
> One question that I would have for them is how were they able to differentiate bipolar manic psychosis from schizoid psychosis?

No idea.

> What happens when you take higher dosages of Effexor? What is the highest dosage you have taken and for how long did you take it?

I dont want to take higher dosages.

> What happens when you take lithium carbonate?

i gain 2 pounds a day.

> Why are you taking such a high dosage of Seroquel? Why are you taking it in the first place?

I was put on meds aggressively in 2012. They just gave like 5 antipsychotics.
