The Dopamine Flux

Living A Full Life With Mental Health Issues

My medications have been taking a toll on my brain or my mind.

The Haldol has been causing cognitive dysfunction within my brain. I can’t think straight, I can’t comprehend what to other people are saying, I can’t understand some of the most simple of things. All because of the Haldol. Antipsychotics are a hell of a drug. They are a hell of a class of drugs meant to rule your mind.

Lately, I haven’t been able to keep up with small tasks like taking care of my animals/pets. Taking them out? I

forget. Feeding them? I forget. It seems almost scatter-brained. That’s the best word I could come up with.


adjective: scatterbrained; adjective: scatter-brained
  1. (of a person) disorganized and lacking in concentration.

I am scatterbrained for the time being. Under the control of so many medications, I dont know where my mind is going to, or where it’s headed. I need a 5 year long term plan.

    the same thin is happening to me. though my psychiatrist doesn’t believe it’s my meds…so annoying. it frustrates me so much i could cry about it. i’m sorry you are going through the she thing. i hope things get better for both of us.


  2. I agree, antipsychotics are a hell of a drug. I’m on a pretty large dose of Seroquel, and I forget to do things like eating. I have gotten on the wrong bus a few times and have found myself in an unfamiliar part of town.
