For those without a depression diagnosis and on APs

How long did it take for the sz negative symptoms to improve?

Some users, one who anoned, said they improved on their own or after reducing AP dose. I decreased my AP dose but they didn’t improve, I guess mine are mostly primary negatives from the sz and not the meds. More treatment resistant.

This is where im at. Coming down off risperidone and going up on haldol. Cymbalta for anxiety/depression. My negatives still exist also.

So the haldol is better than risperidone for negatives? I am on 5mg risperidone, used to be on 6mg.

I dont see any difference with negatives. just with medication sides, like trading sedation on risperidone with akathisia on haldol. Luckily I just got something to take care of the akathisia. Otherwise things like depression, motivation, grooming, etc, dont seem to change.
