Do you mean Haloperidol?
Please enter chat and use reply to respond.
I do yes sorry
Can I ask exactly what you mean by "more spacey"?
Do you mean dizziness, confused, sleepy?
I basically feel at the moment really spaces out like in not here its like everything around me looks strange
I had this before the medication aswell
Alright, Haloperidol is known to cause hypotension or decreased blood pressure which can cause black outs, dizziness, fatigue, confusion.
Ive had that checked was finr
It can also cause sleepiness as well and cause people on it to feel confused and agitated.
But since, you have had this feeling before being on the medication, there is a high chance that this is not due to the medication.
What do you think it is?
well, that requires a thorough history and a physical examination which is done on an office visit and exceeds the capability of this website.
If you are seeing a Psychiatrist, then it is best that you get an appointment scheduled at the earliest to have this evaluated.
Ive had all vital signs checked and my blood pressure, urine etc was all fine. They have said anxiety
Could it be anything physical?
It is unlikely to be physical since, you have received a clear bill of health from your doctor.
Anxiety can cause all sorts of problems and feeling spaced out is one of them.
But fortunately, anxiety can be treated and haloperidol has been prescribed anxiety.
Im convinced im going to die the spaciness is so bad
I just feel so weird 24/7
That can be attributed to your anxiety however, if it is that bad, you should get in to see a doctor at the earliest.
Just so anything physical is ruled out.
Ive been today
Alright, if your doctor has checked you thoroughly, then you need to relax and let the medication work.
So do you think its defo anxiety? Im not going to die of this spaciness?
I have never heard or seen anyone dying of spaciness.
Do you have more queries?
Would there be other symptoms if i was? I just feel so much like im not here its like im nearly unconscious
I can not make assumptions over the internet, since your doctor has seen you today and ruled out everything organic and attributed this to anxiety I feel that you should trust that evaluation however, if you still feel as if there was something left out, you should go to the ER piece of mind.
Ive felt like this 5 weeks somwthing would of happened by now if it was going to wouldnt it?
I think this is your anxiety, it does not seem to be anything serious.
My advise, relax and do not be overtly concerned about it.
Ok ill try that. Its just really scary feeling like this thats all. I find it hard to believe anxiety could make me this ill
Anxiety can cause such symptoms. Its going to be okay.
See your psychiatrist soon.
Ok thanks. Can i just check would blood tests, blood pressure, pulse rate, urine analysis. Would they have picked up anything serious?
Yes, they would have.
So theres no chance it could be then if they were all ok
How can i reduce this spaciness and makr it feel a bit better till meds work
Reduce your stress levels. Be in good company, keep yourself busy and well hydrated.
Do you think this will go away?
I think it should.
If you have no more queries, please do leave a positive rating service.
Im scared im going to be stuck like this
I'm afraid, you are repeating the same question, which I have answered.
Do you want me to opt out if you feel that I am not being helpful?
I know sorry im just scared
You are being helpful im just trying to find anyway to feel better
There is nothing to be scared of, you have normal labs and your doctor has told you this is not physical. The best course of action will be to schedule an appointment with your psychiatrist.
Thinking about this and talking about it will make it worse.
You need to get busy doing something that will take your mind of the symptoms.
Will it? Ive got an appointment but is 4 weeks away earliest i can get.
So you think i shouldnt keep talking about it?
I am telling you it will. Yes, I think you need to put your mind off it.
Other wise you're just going to get more stressed.
And stress increases anxiety.
Now, start doing something that will take your mind off this. I would suggest that you invite a friend over or go out.
My partner has juzt
Just come in but nothing i do seems to help
Then go out.
Please do leave a positive rating service.
Im scared to go out tho coz im so out of it
You should try.
U think it will really help?
I suppose all your queries have been answered. Please leave a positive rating.
All i want is to feel a bit better so i can manage
Just looking way to reduce my spaciness
Haliperidol 2x0.5 and sertraline 100
I had the spaciness before tho? What is it?
Well i was on sertraline already but have been year.
Anxiety doc has said
Ive been on it a year tho and been fine
Do you think it could be a serious illness?
So what should i do? Been to docs today and they told me to keep up with dose
Like i said aswell been on year so cant be that
So do you think ill be ok and wont die?
I just feel like im not on the planet and not living. Everyday is a blur
Could it be the haliperidol making it worse?
Ive been on it a week, how long should this take to subside?
So do you think i will be ok?
Im so scared im going to die as i feel so far away from myself i cant understand how this cant be physical?
So this wont last forever? That terrifies me
Why is it always worse in the morning?
Just been to midwife, checked blood pressure and urine. Would they have picked up any major problems?
Wheres the offer services cant see it?
I cant find it. Anyway my doctor has increased the haliperidol to 2mg a day instead of 1. Will this help with spaciness?
So its not going to help? They said it would.
I feel so so spaced out today i dont know where i am. How can this not be physical?
Ill rate you again. It cant be tho because i had this before going on meds?
I was on sertraline but 50g it is literally so bad now i cant function. I feel like im nearly dead am i.dying?
Is there any serious illness that appears in this way?
Im sitting on sofa now and its like im just not here at all. I feel so close to being dead.
Ive had so many blood tests all come back normal. Would it have shown up on them?
Is there any illness that could kill me immediately that would be like this?
How can you be so sure?
But its so so extreme. I really think that im so close to.dying. i cant believe how spaced out i am... please help me to reduce this a bit
My doctor has just increased them. How do you know its the meds?
Can they make you feel so out of it you dont know where you are? I really feel like this is it .
Why would my doctor increase it if its wrong to do?
Can you promise me i wont die from this? Im convinced its happening
Would it have came up on blood tests if something really wrong?
So not definitely?
So there could be something very wrong?
So if the tests didnt pick it up. What do you think this spacey feeling is if a physical illness?
Are you 100% sure? It really feels like it is to me?
Will i get better?
