Don't think 1.5 mg is a low dose as an adjunct to celexa. Maybe you should try less. 60 lbs. wow! What's geodon?

> Yeltom- I am on a low dose of risperdal (1.5mg) for the anxiety and obsessions that 60 mg of celexa did not take care of. It has worked amazingly well for me- I feel like a different person- no obsessions (they were killing me) and my anxiety has dissipated so much that I no longer even have neck pain. I saw a chiropractor for years because my neck was such a mess- knotted and pain- went on the risperdal and my tension subsided so much I don't have to see a chiropractor any more. Drawback- gained 60 pounds. I am switching to geodon next week because of the weight gain and hoping it works as well. You may not have that problem if you are on such a low dose just watch it. Good luck- may it bring you relief.
