I was being hospitalized every 4 to 5 months before being put on the shot. It makes me very tired the day I get it. But other than that I have had no side effects and been taking it for 9 months.

Comment:
Following nearly ten years mostly psychotic, it took several months to see major results. Continuing improvement came over a two year period. Has now been 'normal' for over three years!! Doesn't necessarily like the shots but the results are great. No noticeable side effects.
