I think I'm going to go up a notch on the risperidone

My head just isn’t quite quiet enough. A little too many discussions going on in there. That doesn’t happen if I’m properly medicated. It could be from sleep deprivation, idk, but I just don’t want to get stuck like this and for it to go on years and years. It’s starting to drive me crazy. I far prefer my quiet head.

Risperidone has been the best for my positive symptoms, I have 0 positive symptoms and no anger issues on it. Though it doesn’t help negative and cognitive symptoms.

That’s really great. I really took quite well to it very quickly. I think it’s a great little med. I’m just on such a tiny dose, which is my choice, my pdoc was wanting me a little higher, at 4 mg, so I see why now. I’m going to try 3 mg for a bit and if this noise doesn’t resolve I’m noe opposed to 4mg. That would be the same amount of medicine I was taking before I had the allergic reaction to my old med that made me have to switch to risperidone in the first place.
