He was finally diagnosed with akathisia. Explaining the illness to a man next to me I simply said, "Another life destroyed in an unknown land."
I walked to nowhere, never looking back.

This pill is most certainly not the shit. I don't know how this drug has such a modern image when it's complete shit. The side effects I can't really comment on, except for one: sedation. If your doctor put you on this he seriously wants you to stfu. This drug makes people so tired it's insanity. 100mg of this and you'll drift off for hours. It might help if you can't sleep but be aware it's addicting. They don't put this on the label, but I'm 100% certain the body becomes dependant on it for sleep. If you can't get it, then you'll lie awake in a manic state all night. The best way to deal with this, is to take some antihistamine sleeping pills, and very slowly try to take yourself off them. I'm sure the drug company is aware how dependant people get and is making alot of money of people who got suckered and now take it just to sleep. It probably causes weightgain to, and there's some evidence it can cause cataracts. If you hear the drug name seroquel, realize that it's a drug which even in small doses will cause people to become snowed. If there's any youths out there who have parents making them take these mickey mouse drugs, then trust me on one thing; deal with your objection to your forced treatment now instead of when you're on your own. There is nothing modern about this drug, it's used to shut people up. This drug is so potent I'm sure it could be used to make people pass out. If I could go back to when I was taking this drug, I would have gave a dose to my dad and...more...
Antipsychotics are a class of drugs based on some fancy carbon based compounds. They act on the nervous system in too many ways to count. The reality of these drugs is that, if you're capable of reading this, then you need to address the underlying problems. I've never had biological psychosis but that doesn't stop doctors from branding me as a permanent head case. I can't say whether these drugs work in severe cases or not, but I think that's probably irrelevant because people crazy enough to depend on this shit are probably SOL regardless of any treatments. Doctors call antipsychotics 'tough stuff' and they resereve that term for all but the most severe treatments. These drugs will get you banned from the military. They may cause you to be a 'drunk' driver regardless of alcohol consumption. Please don't drive on them, I did and I then realized I had to quit them. They increase alcohols effects, and no it's not pleasant. They make you tired and hungry. If you have any doubts whether you need them, then I can tell you that you don't. If your certain then I can't offer you advice. However, if you were placed on these as a child, I am almost 100% certain that you were conned like I was, and you need to rebuild your life. These drugs are very strange in that they are similar to tranquilizers with none of the pleasant effects. Anyways, if you're on these, I suggest you stop them because the drug companies won't conduct proper studies on these drugs because these studies 'WOUL...more...
