If you could only take 1 med for your illness what would it be?

Depixol depot for me

Risperidone was very effective for me.

Risperidone works wonders for my positive symptoms but my negatives are awful.
Also Im experiencing significant sexual side effects on Risperdal.

If I couldn’t take my medication with an anti- akathisia medicine I would kill myself.

I take three meds but amisulpride is main one so I’d go for that one. Will have to take higher dose though, to make up for dropping the other two (olanzapine and lamotrigine).

I have no sex drive on amisulpride and this sometimes irritates me but I have come to learn to live with it because I’d be much worse off without amisulpride. It’s a wonderful med for me.

No clue.

I only use 0.5mg haldol now and i forgot it for a while. I didnt notice any difference at all, but i will take it again today just to be sure and not scare my family.

But i prefer not to take a maintanance med and to use haldol or a benzo prn when im fearful. Or maybe an SSRI in the last week of my period to try if it kills psychosis too (it did before).

Im very much not sure, i think i will ask the nurse next week, i trust her. My psychiatrist wanted me on wellbutrin as an only med. I like the guy, but i think that is a superbad idea.

Definitely the ziprexa. The Lexapro I could learn to live without.

Keep asking for Benzatropine. Other members from Australia are on it I think. @rogueone should know.
