Just curious. I'm not the happiest person in the world, sometimes I get kinda scary thoughts but so far I prefer trying to become happier by myself, slowly learning to appreciate life more, stuff like that. If you feel comfortable talking about this, please tell about your experiences with psychologists\antidepressants (did they help at all?) or why you're also avoiding them even though it is possible that you might need them.

Ummmm, no, Geodon is not lithium. Geodon isn't evil it just makes you very tired. As I said earlier not "all" antipsychotics are sedetives, some are, such as geodon and seraquil, I'v taken both. They help. Especially for schizophrenia. That trance your talking about, is far less harmfull then fullblown psychosis. You've a very interesting view on medications. MZLXS, I'm so sorry. life can be cruel. (edit)As your friends doctor should have told him, the more we go into psychosis, the worse schizophrenia can get due to Flooding. It's important for us to avoid this. If your friend doesn't like the meds he's on he should speak to his pdoc and see if any other meds would better suite him if he's treatable.
They take Geodon which is lithium. Lithium is found in the spodume crystal.
Geodon, aka ziprasidone or Zeldox, is an atypical antipsychotic. It's used to treat schizophrenia, and also the "mixed states" associated with bipolar disorder. Geodon is most definitely not a lithium salt. Hell, it's compound is C21 H21 Cl N4 O S.
Lithium is an element, and the type used for medication is a salt of lithium. It's used for bipolar disorder and can act as a mood stabilizer. It's also been used as medicine in general since the 19th century. "Spodume" (aka, spodumene) is just a type of crystal that is a source for lithium, and mentioning it has very little relevance to lithium as a medication.
