Sounds to me like you are trying to do this yourself. But promise me one thing, that if this does not help, get a doctor that can treat you. You may need someone trained to talk with, during this time.
Over the Counter, try Benedryl it just takes the edge off.
Wishing you the best

From what I understand, the doctor changed your medicine because HE said it was too expensive? Were you able to afford it? If you live in the U.S., there are many programs for people with schizophrenia. If you can afford to buy the medication that was working for you, find a psychiatrist. As far as any over the counter medication, ask the pharmacist at Rite Aide what might help you. Good luck and keep us posted!

You may qualify to receive this medicine cheaper from the company that makes it. See if you can find a web page for it and find an e-mail address or phone number for the company and ask if they have a program for those who can't afford the medicine. There are cheaper meds, like Elavil ( generic amitriptyline) and there is a generic for Prozac and both are pretty cheap. Maybe I was just lucky as both helped me. There are herbs and supplements like St John's Wort, that are supposed to be effective. If you are on any real medication though, you should check with the doctor AND the pharmacist before taking supplements. The pharmacist may also know of programs to help pay for the medicine of maybe get it for free. Best of Luck.
