Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
How are you doing ?
are you there ?
I feel better with less fugue
Can I take high dose or rispirdal?
you have just started on 1 mg please kindly do not rush up and let the drug take some time to adjust in your body so that you can benefit from it .
Rapid increase in the dose is not advisable since it may cause your body difficulty and this will lead to wasting of a good drug like risperidone because if your body due to this rapid dose increase stops responding to this drug then we will have to take this drug off from the current drug regime thus wasting a potentially good drug.
So as of now for 1st week please maintain on 1 mg / day dose to be taken at night time after dinner.
After 1st week you may up the dose to 2 mg / day and maintain on this dose from there on, this dose sall be good enough to counter your fugue, ptsd.
I hope this is understood by you.
if you have any further query please ask so ?
I feel conconfused
I cant think
I feel I cant pay attention to things around me
I cant remember canada
At the moment do not strain yourself , that is do not put pressure on your mind to remember things about your life in Canada because the more you will put pressure on your mind to remember things about Canada the more stressed out ans anxious you will become which will make it even harder for you to remember life in Canada.
I dont know something is wrong
please read what i have written above.
I feel like am deas
Not in life
Not living day
I feel like a ghost
that is called as depersonalization
that means feeling as if your body is not your own .
I feel am looking at life like a game
I feel nothing real
yes this is depersonalization.
so not worry it can be handled .
Now please tell me , have you started risperdal
1 mg at night
The most thing make me confused that I cant get out dissoction
But am worry
Before I travel
I was good
Even with dissociation
Now I feel I cant get out dissoction
Why is that
this sort of fluctuation in your condition is going to happen until you slowly recover from this.
I remember quite well that back in Canada we have had conversations when you were feeling this way,
You mean once I get out fugue?
I will feel good
but this will take
and this sort of fluctuating picture where in you will start feeling like this shall take place but the frequency will start becoming less and less until finally it all gets over.
so basically i am saying that this is just an extension of your dissociation.
which every now and then pops up and then again it goes away.
I do not know if you remember but i will tell you this that many times before you have had this feeling of living like a ghost and you had talked to me those times also and eventually you got recovered from the state each of the times.
But I can get out dissoction once I get out fugue?
You see i have been trying to explain to you one thing from the very start of our conversation and that is both dissociation and fugue go hand in had , if you can come out of one of them completely then the other will also get over, so kindly try to understand that both of them need to be considered together and not separately.
And our goal is to achieve recovery from both of them
And here comes the role of risperidone
it will help you to beat these conditions
but you got to take this drug regularly
