I read in the Schizophrenia Commission about them including pharmacists in the treatment of patients, which I think is long overdue.
We have everybody else in a Ward round- surely the pharmacist should be included!
My own hospitalisation experience dates back to, initially, 1983 and most recent in 2001.
I think I am a recovered schizophrenic!
I can really sympathise with the carer who feels her son was nearly killed by Clozapine,
and also with all the side effects of drugs- the dribbling, tardive dyskinesia, etc.
I get restless feet all the time. I get too much spit in my mouth. I move my jaw, sort of clicking it, an involuntary movement.
