Dyskinesia

I took my first anti psychotic pill today. Actually, i have taken them before. Twenty some years ago I was seeing a psychiatrist who prescribed Stelazine. Despite the fact that I was having bad reaction to it, he never added cogentin to offset the dyskinesia and the experience was a disaster! At the time i wasn’t aware of what was happening to me. The dyskinesia affected my eyes (blinking, secretions), and terrible muscle tension and movements. I have often thought that someone should put him on that and see how he likes it!

Anyway, now i am forewarned and thus fore-armed. I am not really comfortable in doing this right now but will give it the ol’ college try!
