Who is taking more? And for what?

Hello everyone!

So I’m taking Haloperidol 15 mg, Quetiapine 800 mg, Aripiprazole 30 mg, Lorazepam (depends)

Everything is for paranoid schizophrenia.

How much are you taking and for what?

… and I’m still psychotic… ://

I need some extra help I guess

Life is cruel sometimes…

Sometimes I’m having suicidal thoughts… overdose, cutting my wrist or both, all together

Im taking 3mg risperidone for schizophrenia that would be it.

Lucky you, I guess

That sounds like a boat load of medication… has your psychotic-ness tamped down at least from all of that?

Yes, a little bit

i take 2 weekly shot of risperdal consta 50mg, 200mg clozapine a day, 50mg sertraline a day, 75microgram of L-thyroxine per day and lorazepam PRN.

and that is for sz… i also have autism but the meds are for the sz.

I take exactly the same amount of meds namely 500 mg Clopixol depo every 3 week. 160 geodon and 500 mg seroquel by mouth. I have been on even higher doses the past 25 years. For some reason I’m still around without TD or massive weight gain.

I think its time to ask your Dr about Clozapine if Risperdal didnt work too. I read that Risperdal is more effective than all your 3 meds. Clozapine is even more effective than Risperdal.

With Clozapine you can go up to 900mg/day. Risperdal 8mg.

If Amisulpride is available where you are its between Risperdal and Clozapine in efficacy, Clozapine being the most antipsychotic available now.
