Hi there,


The Czech republic, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary have common medical history of Soviet union. Ive found problems/topics I haven’t read about on American recovery websites. Lets share it!

For example:

-huge mental hospitals from 19th century, which reform only to more biological models and less human rights

-public insurance, which tends to control doctors and patients more strictly

-doctor has the power to cancel your driving license if you don’t cooperate

-doctors are prone to use power, is in the past during Soviet union

-recovery is only advertisement for Non-governmental organisations, real alternative is missing

-recovery information in Czech language is rather missing

2001 - diagnosis final: schizophrenic. Antipsychotics and antidepressant, various doses and types. A/Ds for zyprexa compensation

2007 - changing citalec to wellbutrin. New diagnosis: border-line personality

2012 - 5mg of zyprexa and 150 Wellbutrin, adopting ayurveda helped
2015 - gradual tapering off, by skipping days to complete withdrawal; Result: deep depression, psychospiritual emergence/rebound - most hard was paranoia, black perception and insomnia
2016, jan - hospitalized and remedicated, first to 15mg Zyprexa; lowered to 5mg of Zyprexa when discharged. 
2016, july -  quite succesful without antidepressants. 4,5mg Zyprexa.

2016, sept – stress + tantric yoga/magic hazard, hospitalized again, forced treatment: 10 mg Zyprexa and 400mg amisulprid (Amilia).

Current medications and dosages:
5mg Zyprexa (1st of March 2017), 25mg amisulprid (20th of March 2017). Planning to reduce to 5mg Zyprexa 0 amisulprid till spring 2017. Then, when appropriate, full withdrawel, diligently following recovery method


Current supplements: fish oil, Vitamin B+, Ayurvedic herbs (morning: Chawanprash, evening: hot milk with "sleeping formula" made by Pukka herbs with anitpsychotic herbs)
