Are the Side Effects of Antipsychotics Worth the Relief?


I have been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder that is controlled by taking antipsychotic medication. Currently, I take two antipsychotics, and with that help, I often have symptom-free days.

On a symptom-free day, I do not hear voices, I do not get paranoid about my neighbors and I do not experience delusions. I have been told by my doctors that, although I benefit from taking two antipsychotics, there is a chance for double the side effects.
