Everyone seems to be on a pretty high dose…I’m on 100mg of Paliperidone. 50mg from Jan onwards. What I really want is 1mg tablets of risperidone. Why is nobody ever on a low dose?..
I am on just 2 mg of rexulti. Different people have different doses that work for them and are different levels of sensitive to the meds. I happen to be very sensitive to Psych meds and anything above low doses tends to give me awful side effects.
That seems pretty low. Glad you are on a low dose for fewer side effects! At least you won’t end up prediabetic.
I too am sensitive. I was on 0.6mg haldol, but had too many symptoms 2 weeks ago, so back on my old dose of the last 1.5 years: 1mg.
I still have symptoms, but I truly dont understand how anyone can tolerate normal doses.
Give me 3mg haldol a day and i spend my days sleeping and researching the best ways to commit painless suicide.
I’m on 10 mg of Zyprexa. 20 gave me akathisia so we went back down to 10.
I’m on 5 mg of Zyprexa. I would like to go down to 2.5 but my doctor is afraid my symptoms will come back.
I was doing well on 10mg abilify. Then went off meds and relapsed. Now I need 15mg abilify.
I’m on just ten mg abilify
I’m on just 3 mg of Vraylar which I guess it is a fairly low dose.
I’m on 7,5 mg of aripiprazole.
I am on 1mg of Haldol a day. I’ve been as low as .25 mg for an extended period of time. 2mg of Haldol is torture for me. I am the same as you Marian.
I’m on 5mg aripiprazole. Does nothing for me so far.
i’m on a pretty low dose of risperidone,
so i guess i’m the exception.
i can’t say it’s working too well though
Ive always taken low doses. Was recently on resperidone 1mg a day. And then switched to another med that doesnt cause weight gain. In the two months that i took resperidone i gained 40 pounds
Good to hear. 1 mg is low.
I’m on 3mg invega. I think it is a low dose.
Damn thats almost 20kg. I was on risperidone for a month but I don’t think I gained any weight from it. Since march 2018 I haven’t really gained any weight on paliperidone except 4 kg in the past 2 months. Could be my diet though.
I’m on a low maintaining dose of Abilify
I’m on 3.3mg per day, or 100mg a month. Fairly low I guess compared to others on this site.
Are you on the invega sustenna injection? i never heard of 3.3 mg invega. @StonePaperScissors
