Did anyone ever feel hopeless?

Like no meds were working for them, and you would never feel better? I can’t find any meds that help!

What meds have you tried ?

I found the right meds but I feel hopeless of its side effects with no solution

seroquel, only 100 mg, I think zyprexa but once again a very low dose and now I’m .5 mg of Risperidole

0.5mg is too low a dose to have any effect on schizophrenia.

100mg seroquel is too low a dose to have any effect on schizophrenia.

That’s what do frustrating…my dr wants to start off at a low dose and it is doing absolutely nothing. Can I ask to have it increased?

Ask your doctor when are you expected to be on a “therapeutic dose”.

It’s not that the meds aren’t working, you’ve just never been on the minimum dose for schizophrenia (called the therapeutic dose)
