Hi,
I take geodon and latuda(lowest dose). Has anyone else been prescribed 2 anti-psychotics? My doc tried lowering my geodon and I went into an episode. I think she wanted to replace it but now wants to keep both. I can't go too high on geodon and neither on latuda but I feel messed up that I take 2 and thinking am I the only one on 2?

I'm on 10mg of Aripiprazole and 4mg of Risperidone.

Any higher on the Aripiprazole and I get increased anxiety and restlessness so I started to take the Risperidone.

Is seroquel an antipsychotic? If so than yes, seroquel and aripaprazole. My insurance asks me to tell my dr that I don’t need both, but it’s working so I don’t want to mess with it.

Yeah, Seroquel (Quetiapine) is an antipsychotic as well.

I take Aripiprazole and Sodium Valporate. Cheap, generic medications that really work.

I was on two for about a year I think, just went back to one in the last month. I consider myself doing well because voices and all hallucinations are much more minimal now and some feelings from the past when I was normal are returning.

I take aripriprizol and olanzapine. They are very important anti psychotics for me.

Do you have much of a problem with depression in your illness and if so is there a noticeable difference from before you were taking these in combination or not?
