All meds carry dangers really, I like you have been on 'heavy duty' psychiatric drugs, it is irrelevant that they discovered I had no mental illness to treat because they say that retrospectively.
I have begun to develop quite severe 'drug induced' parkinsonism or movement disorder.
Nonetheless they say I will probably develop Pd because my identical twin has PD.
Its a hard call to decide on such drugs which attempt to cure one problem and cause another.
I only wish I had the awareness now, THEN, I think I might have taken a different line, but I would never speak for others who have to make their own decisions.
Like people with PD, they too have to decide do they take their own meds for quality of life in the short term risking a possibility that the drugs will not work at a later stage.
Its awful hard for an individual to have to decide on and make such life changing decisions, suppose when meds are concerned everyone has to make decisions.
Best of luck, I really, really mean that chuck!
