Second-Generation Antipsychotic Monotherapy?
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.
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.
