PTSD, quit smoking, weening off Resperidone. Fatigued, hearing random voices, gastrointestinal problems. Any ideas ?

Hi, My name is AAAAAA...I suffer from PTSD....I recently quit smoking pot again...had three yrs in before the last 2 yrs or so...I also wheened myself off of Resperidone about two wks ago and weened off of Flueroxetine (anti-depressants) months ago... I am extremely fatigued and haven t slept through a night in months having nightmares but lastnight I could hear a series of voices just saying random things...this morning I awoke to pretty serious dizzy spells and I also experienced a cold sensation in the back of my head...chest pains and shortness of breath...I also have gastrointestinal problems that cause severe pains resembling labour pains during child birth.And I have a damaged ovary from four csections that riddled me with adhesions according to a gynocologist who performed a laporoscopy years ago....i can t tell if these new symptoms are stress related or something else related to my health problems...any ideas?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Hearing random voices is a psychotic symptoms. It can occur in depression with psychotic symptoms or psychosis. Risperidone control these voices. So, it is not wise to taper medicine yourself, which can lead to recurrence of psychological symptoms.

Your other physical and somatic complaints can be due to stress and anxiety originating due to auditory hallucinations. But it is better to rule any medical problem by examination by general physician. Same time review with your psychiatrist for reassessment and future treatment planning.

Wish you all the best.
