Hello there,
I’m very curious why you were prescribed such a powerful medication for a supposedly minor problem. Would you be willing to share your diagnosis at the time this medication was prescribed. Although I’m not familiar with any off label use for this medication I suppose there may be some however being an antipsychotic it’s primarily used for mental and mood disorders. Also do you currently have heart failure? What is your current Cardiac diagnosis and do you know your ejection fraction?
I imagine you’re already aware that there are Cardiovascular side effects. I don’t know if those are those are dose related or to the length of use or what.
The one thing I am sure of is that I personally would never use an anti-psychotic medication unless I had a serious illness and was absolutely convinced that I required that particular type of medication.
Wishing you the the best,
Jake
