Almost overnight, my daughter with Parnoid Schizophrenia went from very delusional and confrontational to "back to her old self"--except with the shaking. The shapking is being controlled with Cogentin. The Prolixin does make her sleepy.

Just got out of a hospital, carrier clinic in NJ, where I was prescribed prolixin shots and pills. Along with that I have been taking Lamictal, benztropine, tegretol, tenormin, and ambien CR. So far i feel much different from the way I used to feel on saphris or abilify for antiphychotic meds and also got put in hospital when I always felt wide awake and couldnt eat. I can eat now and the only reason I made satisfaction a 3 out of 5 is that I just started and cant figure out how well this is helping me. I still feel alittle anxiety and misplaced energy but at least this drug does not make me feel sleepy all the time and it also feels like my brain is not dumbed down. It actual gives me a sense of well being which I have not had in ages, even though I have been prescribed anti-depressants in the past. It has more effectiveness and than any of the other meds. Overall as of now I feel much better and looking for a way to channel my new found sense of well-being.

I've been there and done that with most mainstream medications to treat severe anxiety and related depression. I went from non-functional and almost bedridden. In my case I almost immediately felt my anxiety ease. Unlike most other meds I did not feel tired or lethargic. So no zombie feeling. Actually just the opposite. I'm getting up easier and feel more focused since I don't have constant anxiety and bipolar mood swings. Although xanax is required at times, I'm not taking nearly as much. I am also taking zoloft in addition. I hope this helps someone. It definately helped me. So far two thumbs up!!!

My daughter developed Neuroleptic Malignant syndrome and ending up in the ICU. Her whole body was shaking, slurred speech, lost control of bladder, heart rate shot way up and blood pressure. It was a nightmare.

This was a HORRIBLE med 4 me!!! It cramped up all my muscles---especially my jaw muscles. My teeth were literally grinding against each other. I now list it as an allergy for me.

I have my Spouse, the man I married, back!!! I noticed results in his voice & speech within the first 24 hours of taking this medication. He came home from the hospital after 4 nights of being on this medication. All this after 4.5 years of dealing with his delusions, hallucinations, & psychosis.

Prolixin (Prolixyn was the spelling used with me)is a potent brain poison used to torture people. In my case Psychiatry was weaponised by the very wealthy and influential psychologist mother of a former girlfriend. I nearly died from the effects of this medicine and was permanently damaged. This drug has been used as an interrogation device and chemical restraint at secret U.S.A. extraterritorial rendition prisons. This drug lacks efficacy in the treatment of disorders and is what influences school shooters to shoot, maim and kill. This drug does similar damage to all mammals and its knowledge should be allowed to expire from human consciousness. It is nothing more than a by product of herbicide production and as such highly promotes advers sentitivity to even the minutest presence of herbicides. It promotes endocrine imbalance and erosive damageto the metabolic, muscular,cardiac, frontal lobe and vascular systems. This drug similarly effects both healthy and purported mentally ill individuals in an identical fashion. Although there may be some individuals who will claim efficacy or lack of action there are some among them who are simply deceiving the psychiatric community by not taking it and claiming they have because they SO FEAR THE EFFECT that they believe avoidance is justified. This drug has NO CORE EFFECT. This drug is a psychiatrists excuse to chase side effects as if they were symptoms of a disease. It is the pivot point of a debauched charlatanistic quackery and all who hail it as anything positive should be expelled from medicine and punished by incarceration for a minimum of six months of actual consecutive days.
