Well, more than a week ago; I started seeing and hearing things that were not real. I started to freak out. I called pdoc and talked to him and he said go to the ER and then get transferred to another hospital that has a psych unit. Everyone recognized me so they weren't sure why until I told them what was going on. They realized this was totally different than depression. It turns out I was getting too much anti-psychotic med so he lowered the dosage to 15 mgs of Abilify. Still on depakote though. Since last tues I have not had any symptoms of hallucinations. so he released me Friday.

Hey Beej! I'm glad you're home and are feeling better! That must have been scary for you, huh? It's a good thing they discovered what the problem was, so easy as just lowering your med - that's good!

Thanks for sharing and welcome home! I hope you continue to feel well!

Hugs
