What is the Best Medicine for Paranoia?
It turns out, for me, the best drug for my paranoia, ever, is called Navane, chemical name thiothixene. I hope they NEVER discontinue this medicine. It came out in 1968, and I know much of my success in life has been directly because of this drug. It is so effective for paranoia, articles have been written about that specific indication in MEDLINE. There are side effects, but this drug has allowed me to graduate from a competitive undergraduate program, then achieve a masters, then work for about a decade as a librarian, and write over 30 well-received books, among other things.
I started navane first in 1992 at Stony Brook University Hospital,during my first psychotic break. Over the years, I made the mistake of trying monotherapy of Clozaril, Abilify, Seroquel, Zyprexa, Geodon, and many others. Right now, what seems to be working great is
- Morning 2mg Abilify
- Evening 10mg Navane, 2mg Risperdal
I’m getting the restful sleep I need, my mood is quite good, and I feel good in general. I AM looking forward to trying Lumateperone which may come out in 2017, as it is part of a whole new class of medicines. I’m always game to try something new, but time-tested Navane will be hard to beat.
