Default My side effect med

I know you're all pretty sick of reading about this, but my side effect med wasn't taking the pain away but it was taking the edge off. Now I'm out and everyone is out. The drug company, the pharmacies, none...at all! No one has any idea when they will be in again. So here I lay, wanting my meds.
I'm just hoping the splitting of the geodon helps...not so far.

Not sick of reading about it. Happy you are comfortable sharing. Sorry about the meds as I know how awful this is for you. Hugs my friend.

I don't understand why the pharmacy can't keep it in stock if you order it every month.

Just found out that the drug company isn't producing anymore of my med for 12 months. I don't know what to do.

Geodon works well for me. I'm gonna cut my dose in half and see if it helps.

My pdoc said the only AP that helps dystonia is clozapine. I gained 50 pounds on that shiit. I finally lost those 50 pounds and I don't want to put it back on. But I dont want to go through this pain for an entire year, so I need to decide.
