I’ve had symptoms of psychosis get much worse with heat and sun increase, even a little. I’m on Risperdal, Lithium, and Zyprexa. I’m also on Zoloft. But I don’t know what to do. I have recent thyroid illness that makes it all more difficult. Advice?

What symptoms exactly are influenced by the weather? Btw, how much Risperdal are you on? Are you monitored by a psychiatrist?

Perceptions are different when weather changes.... 6 mg. Yes, I have a doctor.

Hmmm.... I guess I feel more restless and see that people notice. Plus it’s miserable. 😓

So you experience some kind of delusions that get amplified? What kind of psychotic positive symptoms do you experience that you have been diagnosed with?

It’s a good thing you are aware about some influences + the fact that you experience paranoia and you can do a reality check on your thoughts. Keep practicing until you are satisfied with your emotional reactions
