Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 day ago):

  • Was taking 165 mg methadone. reduced to 55mg within 7 months. Onset of paranoid schizophrenia. Increased back to 70 mg methadone and now taking zyprexa and haloperiol. Can the paranoid schizophrenia be a result of the methadone reduction (possible too rapidly) and if so, can I expect the condition to be permanent or temporary. How do I now get off methadone and the antipsycotics. Dr. has suggested that I might have xxy syndrome...dont know if that is significant.
