I seem to become unwell/psychotic every year around Christmas time. This has been an ongoing thing for about 6 years and has resulted in hospital admissions. My psychiatrist has picked up on that. He said today at my meeting he wants to increase my Paliperidone from 100mg to 125mg around November and that will help balance me out over the Christmas period then he will decrease after the new year back to 100mg. I think that is a good thing.

That’s good that your pdoc has seen a pattern and is going to try to save you the resulting hospital admissions.
