Back on Risperidone

Hi all,

Quick update from me.

I am back on Risperidone 4mg daily, I feel better to be honest, voices very quiet sometimes disappear. Bad news is that I have literally no sex drive, can't finish even if I want to.

Apart from that it looks more positive, I am waiting for an assessement for my multiple personality disorder, 18 months waiting list, latest would be Janaury 2022 but at least I am on the waiting list.

Abit disappointed I could not hack life without the A/P but at least its a move in the right direction.

I was on 3mg of Risperidone for many months. It seemed to work alright for me. It also killed my sex drive. Recently I've been switched to Quetiapine (Seroquel) because I was having trouble sleeping. The quetiapine seems to be doing better for me in regards to symptoms and my sex drive is back. The only negative is that it's hard to get out of bed and I crave sugar a lot.
