my dose of Risperdal Consta from 37.5 mg to 25 mg every two weeks today. She will see how I do on that on the 20th of December and if it goes well, she will lower it more to 12.5 mg.
The thing is, I only got 5 hours of sleep the night before last and yesterday I was very paranoid, presumably because of lack of sleep. I accused my best friend of stealing “thousands of dollars” from me, of being a scammer, a thief, a drug addict, a feigner of MI, a phoney, cheat and liar, etc, etc…
I was firmly convinced of all this last night. Now, after 11 hours of sleep, I’m not as convinced anymore.
I hope I do well on the dose decrease. I’m decreasing in the hope that it will improve my piano playing. My doctor knows this.
Good luck @SkinnyMe I hope the reduction goes as planned!
Just be careful @SkinnyMe.
Good luck with the reduction!
Don’t know if you’re a fan of Harold Budd @SkinnyMe, but here’s a song with some nice piano for you! I just listened to it and thought of you.
Good luck @SkinnyMe
But do you think it’s wise to lower your Risperdal dose drastically just so you can improve your piano playing?
This doesn’t make sense to me.
It’s very risky
Piano is THAT important to me @Wave.
Yes I understand @SkinnyMe
We’ll best of luck and it’s expected to run into some bumps in the road as you slowly adjust to the lower doses.
Best of luck
I hope it all works out. My dr wants to increase my Haldol from 15 to 20 mg. But I said no because it’s so hard to function already on 15 mg
I completely understand this.
Just let it take the time it takes.
I wish you the very best.
Greeting’s from Europe.
