Hi, I am new to this forum I was diagnosed with schizophrenia 9 years ago when I was 25 hi :).

If anyone could give some advice I am currently changing medication and am having hallucinations very brief flashes of people like my gf and father staring at me llike they are ghosts with a real non expressional look on their face which is very haunting it feels like the twilight zone. I think it's the reduction in risperidone. Can anyone relate.

What are you changing risperidone with? What dosage are you at now? Any other symptoms you experience? Beside the disorder, how do you define yourself? What you do day by day?

I am schizophrenic with psychosis- hallucinations. I too reduced my risperidone and it was very bad for me I started the whole hallucination process again. I was on 4 mgs a day and went down to zero over 6 months and I had to go back on meds again. It was really devastating for me.

I really wanted to get off risperidone just too hard with the withdraw. I am so sorry you are experiencing this. I know exactly how you are feeling. Lots of love and hugs Jules
