So today is my seventh day on 0.50 mg risperidone. I wanted to try this kind of medication for a long time. I've been on ssri's for about 10 years and switched to clomipramine July 2018 because ssri's didn't work like they did before. (My main problem....I have 'white polar bear' ocd and was free of symptoms for about 6 years. 3 years ago big relapse). I'm on 100 mg of clomipramine.... I tried increasing but then the side effects become too much for me.I don't think risperidone is doing anything special. I expected a little more, but maybe I'm just impatient.I was hoping the constant intrusive thought (which has overtaken normal thinking patterns) would become less frequent. I hoped silence would come.Or that it would flatten the emotion that always follows after thinking 'it'. Like: "I don't care that you (intrusive thought) are on my mind" and that my attention would quickly shift to something else.On the plus side....I'm sleeping even better than before. It is nice to be able to sleep the whole night instead of getting out (sometimes thrice a night) because I have to pee(which is a side effect of clomipramine).May I expect better results after two weeks? Of should I ask for a higher dose of risperidone?
Hi there, I was just wondering if anyone here has tried Rexulti as an AD adjunct for depression. Please tell me what you thought of it, I know it's very similar to Abilify, but surprisingly Rexulti under my insurance + the manufacturer discount card is cheaper than generic Abilify, so I want to get familiar with it. I have only had one true experience with an AAP, Seroquel, and it was actually really nice but it made me sleep like a rock, so I got off it years ago. I'm not switching to Rexulti at the moment, but my psych let me know it's the next option if Wellbutrin doesn't work out. Again, let me know your experiences with it, and I guess Abilify too since they are similar. The thought of being on an AAP scares me, with all the side effects and such, especially for depression. But I have read Rexulti and Abilify both have "pro-cognitive" effects which is exactly what I need. Also, has it helped with your anxiety at all? Do AAPs generally help with anxiety? Because if I'd be able to get off Klonopin that would be a plus. Thank you all for any replies!
