Before I was diagnosed things were very difficult for me. I was hearing voices non-stop, was paranoid about a lot of things, always felt like I was in danger.After taking meds to sort it all out I feel much better mentally but physically I am having problems because of the meds.I find it difficult to study based on the meds, my grades have decreased, and I’ve caused my family a lot of worry and bother.

Surely the advice they say wouldn't be anything different to on the internet and I don't really want to waste their time on something like this when they could be spending it on someone else...

When you see your GP they'll probably refer you to a psychiatrist, that's if you have symptoms of schizophrenia.

I have all these except extra saliva. Instead I have a super dry mouth all day and night - have to carry water with me everywhere and even wake up randomly in the night desperate for a drink.

I also have a lot of difficulty with concentration and memory.

Weight gain, diarrhoea, drowsiness, hyper salivation, brain functioning very slowly, lack of periods or very light periods (which isn't actually a bad thing!), increased appetite.
