I'm now back on Risperdal along with... (18 replies)

... I had a therapist since 1994 and she had me go see a Pschyiatrist because she felt I had depression. It's been so long since I saw my Pshyciatrist and don't ever remember him giving me a diagnosis or filling out any questionaires. I just took meds he gave me.

... I do think there is a correlation. My acne got really really bad when I switched to lythium and I went to a dermatologist and got on an antibiotic which helped me (vs birth control) Didn't cure it, but helped it be less severe.

... I'm bipolar and want to get pregnant too. I looked up some things on the web and it looks like some medications are safe for pregnancy.

... thanks for the feedback; it has been suggested to me as a replacement for perphenazine. I have not found much when I googled it; where can I find out more about the muscular problems? (18 replies)
... Hi Kat, Thanks for the heads up. I've been on Seroquel for about nine months. I'm regularly monitored for blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

Oh well, I know we all react differently to different medications. It's such a chemical... (18 replies)

... Sorry about the trouble with my replies. I'm new at this. I took Geodon for a long while and really liked it. I didn't gain weight and it helped with sleep.
