NEED ADVICE!! Asking doc about Risperdal.

Posted by BRC on August 30, 2004, at 11:55:39

Hi, I will be seeing my pdoc. tommorow and I am hesitant to ask for a medication change. I have severe OCD, anxiety, and Depression. I currently take 60mg of Lexapro, 30mg of Remeron, 4mg of Klonopin, and 1,200mg of Trileptal. All of this medication has worked very well with my anxiety, depression, and compulsions.

But my biggest problems are the intrusive, unwanted thoughts associated with OCD. My therapist along with my own resarch and contacting doctors at the OCD foundation have revealed that a very low dose of the atypitacal anti-psychotic Risperdal approx. 1-2mg along with an SSRI has helped many patients with the thought disorders associated with my sort of OCD.

But I am afraid to ask my pdoc. about trying me on the medication. And I know that I am on so much medication now I am scared to take another one. Also I have heard of irreversable side effects associated with antipsycotics. So, I don't know what to do. But I wonder if this medication could really help with this horrible thoughts that are ruining my life.

I would appreciate anyones comments or advice on this subject. THANKS.
