Hi everybody



Nov 26, 2018
I'm a middle-aged male with a history of minor anxiety, depression and a strong psychosis. The anxiety and depression went away by themselves and I used no medication for them, but I was hospitalized for a few months for psychosis, it was that bad. The medication, risperdal 4mg back then, helped with the voices but not with delusional thoughts, psychologist helped for that.

I experienced another psychosis last year and got some tools for how to deal with them now, some from this site hearing voices section stickies.

Now my medication is 2mg risperdal and I'm gonna talk to doctor about getting off it. Got some nasty side-effects like loss of emotions and sexual appetite, that why.
