Wants to see me ASAP after I’m off quarantine for covid. Like the very next day. I’m off my Risperdal Consta depot and I guess she considers that some kind of emergency. I don’t agree with her. I’m doing just fine.
I would still see her she’s just making sure she’s confident everything is ok … I hope you feel better over the next few days.
Why are you not taking the Risperdal Consta anymore @SkinnyMe?
What prompted you to go off it?
Yeah, you’re doing fine right now; she’s worried about how you will be in the future. Things can go south pretty quickly.
In answer, I was in the UK when my last scheduled dose of Consta was supposed to be given and I didn’t return home until almost a week later due to unforseen long layovers with the airline. And by that time I caught covid and couldn’t come to the shot clinic because of quarantine. So, I figure I’m doing fine without it so, I don’t need it. @ish @77nick77 @Wave @ZmaGal
I’ll talk to my pdoc the day after tomorrow about it. I’ll be off quarantine then.
Wouldnt weaning yourself off be the healthiest choice?
Yeah, until you’re not doing fine.
I see what happened. But I don’t think symptoms always appear right away after stopping your meds. You should start up again when you’re able
I see my doc tomorrow. I’m going to see if she wants to start me back up on it again. But this time, at a lower dose, hopefully.
I haven’t tried to play piano since my trip. I should try and play today to see if the lack of Consta is making any difference.
Get back on your meds @SkinnyMe
Or else you could unravel fast!
