Target dose 2mg

Going to tell my psychiatrist to slowly titrate my Risperdal dose from 4mg to 2mg.
This may take months but eventually I’ll get there.

Good luck @Wave

How did the Depokate reduction go in the end? (Sorry if I got the name wrong!)

Why do you want to go down on it? Weren’t you just saying that without it you get psychotic?

Actually I don’t know for certain.
5 years ago I went nuts because Vraylar made me manic and psychotic.
I may have gotten psychotic because I came off of Risperdal too quickly and experienced rebound psychosis.

This time going down on my dose very slowly.

I’ve been on doses lower than 3mg with few problems before.

Thanks @Joker

Be careful with messing with your main AP.

I have messed with about 6 meds in the last 2 months, but I was always told by my old pdoc who’s now happily retired (I hope), that the Amisulpride is the doctor drug, for doctor decisions.

Well, I hope you have success. Just remember that going off a med can make it not work in the future.

I was on abilify successfully for 7 years. Went off it at the advice of my doctor. Went psychotic right away. Tried to go back on it (and 4 times since then) and it’s never worked again.

Just be careful.

This is a pretty “safe” dose.

Thanks @LED

Your lucky, you only have to take 4mg…now 3 or 2. Your positive symptoms must be very under control. That is great…good luck with lowering the dosage.
