Need opinions on anti-psychotic
    #2008413 - 10/14/03 03:44 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Went to a psychatrist today and he things i need the anti-psychotic Risperidone. I am feelinbg depressed and I told him that along with the feelings I have about everything being fake almost and everything in this life is wierd and somehow focused on me. He told me I might be too self aware too. But he couldn't really tell me the side effects of this, and I don't feel crazy, I actually felt a bit better after just talking to him.

Anyone have an opinion?

"everything in this life is wierd and somehow focused on me."

kinda like "The Truman Show?" I get that often...... I think its my neon ego gasping for attention

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

I stopped smoking pot and stuff because the high isn't even the same now. So I don't really use anything, maybe booze but hardly ever. I told the guy the exact thing kind of like the truman show. I've just been questioning "reality" and it really annoys me. I also think that when people say things and I ask them what they said or ment they seem strange to me when they respond to that. Like they are hiding something?

they seem strange because it's a strange question...
"Hello"

"Huh?"

I don't know it's hard to explain what I feel. I notice things in the moment then can't really put it together later on.

risperdone causes weight gain in a lot of people. of course everything is fake, we all know it, just find stuff you like to do and dont pay attention to the bullshit. or if you still want a med, maybe ask for something a little less harsh then risperdone. just tell him you have bad anxiety and get some xanax, that should make you feel better.

i would recommend seeing a psychologist or counselor if talking to the psychiatrist seemed to help. i've been on and off of meds (mostly antidepressants) for years, and whether i'm on them or off them i feel about the same. the antipsychotic i was on (zyprexa) was i'd say more detrimental than helpful, but then i never did stop smoking the pot during that time (yeah, pot can be bad when you struggle with mental illness.) the best thing you can probably do is to get out when you're feeling down, have fun with your friends, just go for a walk, etc.

remember: when drugs first come out and are prescribed, the long term benefits or drawbacks are not adequately researched. you are the guinea pig.

I think he is giving you a wrong diagnosis. It sounds to me like you might have have Depersonalization disorder and some depression. You should research this and print off a copty for your psychiatrist or explain it to him. Particularly print off a copy of a diagnosis information sheet with treatment information. SSRI's (anti depressants)are the only things I know that are used for this, not anti psychotics. And you probably would not enjoy the side effects of anti psychotics. I have experienced depersonolization disorder and found the best thing to do was to not concentrate on it and to go with it and treat it as normal and not as a problem. That should make you feel more centered. I hope that helped.

Risperidone (Risperdal) is used in the treatment of HPPD sometimes. Just throwing that out.

Well my doctor agrred with me that I didn't need an anti-psychotic. I told him I heard Xanax was good and I thought it would help me. He gave me some 0.5mg xanax pills, so I will see how I react to it tonite. Hopefully this stuff will help out.

My opinion is that you don't need pills to solve your problems, especially not anti-psychotics. Psychatrists get paid to prescribe drugs, so they are gonna feed you whatever the fuck you ask for (like the xanax, lol). And if you tell them your unhappy they will give you some more bullshit pills that will only fuck you up even worse. Fuck pills, deal with your problems.

Yeah, I do feel like that. It seems my entire exsistance isn't what it seems to be. Kind of like im being controlled like a TV show or something? I made this post awhile ago and things haven't changed, other than I started taking effexor to see if that helps. I wasn't having any luck changing things on my own, so I hope this can give me a little push.

Chief - I don't like the idea of anti-depressents or anything like that, which is why I never took them. I've been like this for over a year now and it's fucking horrible. I couldn't help it out by myself, so I decided to use effexor as a last resort. If it doesn't help then I don't know what to do next.

I've not heard many firsthand accounts about Effexor.
During a particularily hard part of my life, I took Zoloft for chronic depression, and it helped for a time. I've heard more success with Wellbutrin than anything else, but I think the key to success is going into with the attitude "this won't fix everything, this will just stablelize me long enough to figure out how to really fix things."

Its a tricky one...You won't know if the Risperidone will help untill you try it!! Im a mental health nurse so have this discussion with people on an almost daily basis. The drug itself doest actually make you put on weight but it can affect appetite and cause agitation and restlessness in some people when they first start taking it.
In my experience...people are incredibly judgemental about both antidepressants and antipsychotic medication without being given all of the facts.
The truth is..they make some people feel bad but for others they can be literally life changing and beneficial. Ive seen both sides of the coin and I have 10 years experience of seeing people taking these kinds of drugs.
Bottom line is...they wont work unless you take them...if you dont like how they ,ake you feel then stop taking them and go back to your doctor. There are many many many others that may be more suitable and it is sometimes a trial and error process to find the drug that suits you.
I believe that use of drugs alongside good support and councelling is worthwhile and it will make a difference...it just takes time and patience...Pm me if you wanna talk...monkey
