The mood disorder and depression have always been the primary concerns for me. As far as the pyschosis, that is pretty much under control with Risperdal. I haven't had a psychotic episode in 7 years, so I am ecstatic about that. Owing that people with mental illness tend to have poor diets, it makes sense to take natural nutrients that our bodies use all the time to function normally. I've been trying to improve my diet, but at times, I fall back into my old habits of eating greasy, fast food and sugary beverages. I think the supplements have made me feel healthier overall. I just want to feel okay, you know, from one day to the next. I think my vitamin regimen has helped me achieve this to a large degree; however, my energy level could be improved, but it is better than it was a few years ago. I actually move around more than I used to and I don't spend as much time lying in bed as I used to. I think the best thing you can do is use supplements as a complement to medication. I believe you, too, have succeeded in this respect. How long did it take you to determine what supplements you needed and also the optimum dosages? It took me a few years to get it down right, and that's with using information from the Internet to get some ideas of how I could naturally deal with mood disorders. So thanks for your post and "hats off" to you for succeeding with your supplements.
