hey,
Not sure if this is the right room for this....
I'm just concerned about my bf, he was prescribed "major tranqulizers" yesterday (sorry im not sure which one) but I've been reading about them generally online and they sound a bit scary...
I was just wondering what side effects anyone may have had on them? and how helpful they were?
I don't really understand why he's been up on them because as far as im aware he's not had any pyscosis (i really cant spell) was wondering if anyone had any suggestions?
I guess i have plenty of experience with ADs, but these just sound much more scary and serious...
Thanks

I have never had any psychosis but have been on a couple of these type of medications for anxiety/intrusive thoughts/agitation.

I am fortunate and I did not experience any side effects, except that for a while I did not sleep if I missed a dose, but that did pass.

They did help me, along with therapy, and I have been off them for over 6 months now.

When you feel like letting go, hold on.

Courage does not always roar.
Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow".
