Really fatigued by risperidone and paroxetine

Posted by Jaxter99 on August 6, 2023, at 19:54:59

Hi - I used to be on here years ago.

I have agoraphobia (with panic attacks). They used to be well controlled by SSRIs - but the SSRIs had a habit of 'pooping out' on me after about 3 years. After the 4th one failed my pdoc put me back on my first SSRI (paroxetine - I think it's called Seroxat in the UK) along with a low dose of risperidone (0.5mg). That worked really well (I felt almost bullet proof!) while I was only working part time. (My son was quite young at the time, hence the part time work). I only felt tired occasionally, and it was manageable. About 6 months ago I started working full time, and it's almost floored me. I spend half of the weekends napping to recover from working during the week - and it's just a desk job. (I'm a graphic designer). I take the meds at night, but does anyone have any hints on how to mitigate the fatigue? I've talked to my pdoc about it, but he says it's such a low dose of risperidone he can't understand why I'm so tired from it.

I've had full blood count done from my doc twice, so I'm not anaemic or anything like that.
