Does increasing antipsychotic or antidepressant help?

Does increasing antipsychotic or antidepressant help me if I ever suffer badly again?
I would like to know if I am stressed up and drop into mixed episode would a increase in any psychiatric medication help?I am not suffering now and I am doing okay but just for precaution if I ever go down…please share your experience thanks

I now take only antipsychotic-Solian. But when I was depressed, my doc. upped the dose and I am feeling better now, so it can help, because atypical antipsychotics has antidepressant effect, too.

I can’t say it helps everyone… but it did help me when I was in the worst of my negative swing.

It took a huge med change to help get me back into the living.

In small amounts I believe yes. Over medicated no.
