Risperdal/antipsychotics

Hello folks.

I'm currently on 2 mg of Risperdal a day. It's for a schizophrenic psychosis, now in full remission. My psychiatrist has proposed to lower the dose to 1 mg.

I've tried to find out more about it, but it seems I have no luck. Will decreasing the dosage of Risperdal make me feel better or function better?

Does anyone have any input ?

Depends on what you mean by "better", I guess.  Are you having trouble with side effects?  Or are there negative symptoms that it's just not addressing?  I don't have personal experience, but it seems like those two things could be easily confused (eg. re: functioning).  If you've been in full remission for some time now, and pdoc thinks reducing this is the right thing to do, seems worth a try.
