Sometimes, if a person is considered "treatment resistant," 2 antipsychotics are used. Other times, the combinations aren't that rational. I think you should talk to your prescriber about why you're on 2 antipsychotics, and ask what the benefits are, what the risks are, and if its possible for you to be put on only one antipsychotic. If your doc isn't helpful, you may want to seek out another one. Like I said, using 2 or more antipsychotics is sometimes helpful, but for the vast majority of people, its probably a good idea to take 1 antipsychotic only.
