Hello, i was curious to know .. Can antipsychotic drugs permanently alter appearance making one less physically attractive throughout treatment?

Depends : Antipsychotic medications can alter appearance through weight gain and sometimes slow movements and cause stiffness in muscles, which can change a person's appearance.

The condition is most often caused by a prominent bone in one or both of the toes that rub against each other. Try padded sleeves or tube foam. Ultimately, an X ray and surgery (shaving down the prominent bone, etc.) may be necessary to get rid of the problem. ...Read more

Sounds like you're making progress tho. ...Read more
