I was on risperidone for around 6 wks now it wasn't perfect but it was helping a bit but I got told today I was to stop them as it was effecting my body in someway which I understand but my gp didn't have the decency to call me got the office lady to call and was told just to stop no replacement med or ne thing I get treated this way cause they say I have a personality disorder I feel so let down the system so wrong 6 wks and still no appt with my psychtrist I'm ready to explode as I've had enough of them taking the piss I'm wide awake with terrible withdrawals

Sounds as though you're having a pretty rough time of it at the moment.

Did your GP not mention coming off of the meds gradually? Perhaps there was an immediate risk and they had to be stopped abruptly; though this does seem strange.

Can you go back to your GP and talk through your withdrawal concerns and also ask them to chase up your appointment with your psychiatrist?

I think that's really really bad practice. :mad:

To call you in and talk face to face, to just expect you to stop rather than sensibly reduce your dose and to not offer you any alternative - I think that's absolutely terrible.
I'm so sorry that the GPs you've seen have been so bad.

I know this might have already been suggested and i've got a feeling you've already tried, but are there any other GPs at the surgery that you can see who might me more helpful?
Also, just wondering if/when you have an appointment with a psychiatrist?

Yes, you are LEGALLY entitled to a second opinion. When you ask for it,it cannot be refused,it is the law!

So sorry this has happened to you. I too was on Risperidone and now on Lamictal. Things are much better on lamictal. Thinking of you!

Still no news on the appointment with the psychiatrist?
Have you got a number you can contact them or their secretary on?
You shouldn't be left waiting so long. It's ridiculous. :hug:

Unofortunately psych appointments can take a while to come through - the secondary care system is quite busy, and they get a lot of referrals. It's like trying to funnel things through a straw - takes a while.
My initial appointment took about 8 weeks to come through and that was 6 years ago now. I can't imagine the system has improved at all in that time.....

Try and be patient, or give them a ring and ask if they know how long it's likely to take.

Honestly, I think you're doing so well to make it up to this point.
I know you've been writing here for what seems like a while about some really uncomfortable experiences... just hold on to the hope that you'll get an appointment soon and hopefully some decent help. x

Combination of cuts to services, increased incidence of mental/social illness, & increase of awareness/media campaigns leading to more people seeking contact with services - i think has created a perfect storm. Services are flooded - 'mental health' is a growing tsunami in the UK.

Personally i can't even get a referral to a psychiatrist - the last time i tried (have tried 4 times in the past 2 years), the GP said the LMHT are only accepting new referrals from people in severe psychosis, &/or at imminent risk of suicide. i was told when i was discharged around 2 & a half years ago that i could self refer back at any time.

Truth is on balance i don't really want any contact with them on the whole - given the limitations of what's on offer - What service is provided anyway? Think it can help with benefit claims, but there is also a lot of interference. Some people seem to get a lot from contact with them all, but i wonder how much genuine resolution to peoples difficulties is being achieved in a lot of cases?
