And the other adviser said...

    Anxiety and paranoia

    Had appointment today. Mentioned anxiety. Quick response-" You have a paranoid personality it's to be expected " Maybe they think being on an antipsychotic reduces the paranoia(it does to an extent) and from that the anxiety diminishes. I wish it worked that way but it doesn't. Never any...

    It is worth stopping and it is possible. I've only been reading about peoples experiences for a short time but there are those (surely on here as well) that have stopped. There might be the odd relapse but I think that is to be expected sometimes especially if you try to deal with things...
