Ok this is a long shot and what I have to say is unbelievable, unfortunately it's also true.
For roughly 20 years I was on high doses of most of the medications in book (section 4 BNF, to be precise). These include roughly 6 weeks on 1000mg or 1gram chlorpromazine a day. And a prolonged period,over a year prehaps many years of 20mg Haloparidol, 600mg clozapine and the max dose venlafaxine daily. Despite this I still had breakthrough symptoms once a month. I was on Clozapine for a total of 17 years. I am forever grateful to the consultant who supervised my difercult titrated withdrawal.
I am symptom and medication freeand have been since 2013 when I had my ovaries removed.
But the question that nobody can answer is what long term physical damage all these medications have caused? I am well aware of the non physical harm these prescriptions caused but that's an elephant in the room better not point to it.
Before anyone says no physical harm has been caused, I will ask if long term use of illicit drugs would cause lasting harm. I do find it strange that a medication that can destroy your immune system does not cause long term harm and largactol does actually mean many actions.
I have also just had a MRI scan it should lesions in the white matter of my brain dates uncertain could be months old could be years.
Do I have the right to know what the treatment I received for my PreMenstrual Syndrome has done to me?
