    On Thorazine, I am always tired, sleep too much, am overmedicated, have got just a hint of the "Thorazine shuffle" and if I get up too quickly, I feel faint. I am on lithium as well, and I am going ask the doctor whether I can take it just at bedtime only. It's not that I find it a horrible drug, it's just that I find the side effects so annoying.

    This medication was recently prescribed for me at a low dosage to help me sleep when I was manic. It alleviates some symptoms, but one of the side effects that I have experienced is palpitations of the heart, or tachycardia. I plan to consult with my psychiatrist about this medicine.
