Hi Did you got my message?
Sorry about that. I forgot to mention it earlier I also have PTSD, but the nightmares are not about my PTSD experience. They are completely different they are very intense and bad some of them are very disgusting as well. I am also on Resperidone 2 mg then doctor increase the dose to 4 mg still no difference. She said she is hoping that resperidone help me but I am very frustrated. I also heard Effexor sometimes make depression worse or increase suicidal thought which this happening to me sometimes.
And yes I had nightmares before taking 300 mg of effexor. Thank you Susan
Hi again Susan,
Yes, they are worse since taking high dose of effexor. Though I had worst nightmares but now it is beyond worst.
It is been a week I am on 4 mg of Risperidone as I said before no effects whats so ever. I have an appointment with my psychiatrist soon and I know either she will increase the dose or change to something else or get upset.
At first my sleep was really bad, then they putted me on serouquel and my sleep got better now I stopped seroquel I am back to square one so yes my sleep is not good. Effexor made it worse.
I was sleeping around 6 hours now I sleep for like 3 or 4 hours.
Thank you so much Susan for your help. You are one big psychiatrist I should say. I will call in tomorrow to see if I go as a walk-in. Other wise if I feel suicidal or restless I will go to ER. I live in Canada and to be honest our medical care is not that great. My health is very important to me and this time if I feel my psychiatrist is not helpful or just giving me punch of medication I will come to USA for a second opinion about my condition
Susan, do you know when resperidone should respond well? should I give it more time? Thanks a bunch
I will for sure update you and again thanks alot. I wish you a very happy new year. Happy 2013.
Happy New Year. I went to my psychiatrist explained her everything she said I have to be on effexor a little more longer. She prescribed me APO-Lorazepam 2mg for sleep and anxiety. She increased Resperidone to 6mg still no effect she said she will switch it to something else. Now Effexor lessen my depression very little bit not that much I guess it takes more time every
Happy New Year. Sorry my other message disappear because of technical problems. So I went to my psychiatrist explained her everything. She said I have to be on Effexor a little more longer. She prescribed me APO-Lorazapam 2mg for sleep and Anxiety. She increased Resperidone dose to 6mg still no help she said she will switch it to something else. Effexor lessen my depression very little I guess I need more time to fully see the results everyone is different.
