Highs and lows

I made an earlier appointment to see my pdoc next week.
Yesterday I was high as a kite (mania)
Today I sunk to a deep depression (suicidal ideation)

This is what happened after cutting down on the Risperdal to 4.5mg from 5mg.

I am not on Depakote, this could be the real issue.

Hang in there @Wave. I’m glad you see your pdoc soon. Something isn’t right. But there’s a major plus side here - you have insight so you weee able to schedule an appointment and you knew you needed the meds. I hope your pdoc has wisdom on your situation and that you get the adjustment you need. Good luck!

Changing the med doses lower is probably going to cause some instability atleast temporarily

You have good self awareness @Wave and that’s great. I myself would probably have been oblivious. And as if that weren’t bad enough, if the past were any indication, I would have been very resistant to advice.
