I am a 25year old male. I am, now prescribed risperidone and found my sweet spot at 1mg. I was earlier prescribed Zoloft 100mg which did not work for me. However I noticed 1mg risperadone + 50mg Zoloft is an even better combination to keep me productive/normal. I took the Zoloft because I had two job interviews which would help in the nervousness. Seems to work, however I need to be free of these medications as I had increased bad behavior when I was 24 and very abusive and destructive. What suggestions?
Combination is better than alone, as both will support one another. But can't be stopped abruptly. Specially once you have been feeling better and may need few more months to be better for long term. Close follow up with the psychiatrist may be continued.
Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
