Jr I have paranoid schizophrenia. I take Fluphenazine 2.5 mg

Customer Question

Hi my name is***** I have paranoid schizophrenia. I take Fluphenazine 2.5 mg tablets every morning and night and also take traizodone for sleeping at night 100 mg tablet. The only problem I have is that I get depressed and I try to cope with the depression since I was 16 when I was diagnosed paranoid schizophrenia. My question to you is should I change medications or should I stay with the same medications?

I also have nausea when I eat. So it is difficult for me to eat and I don't want a medicine that would cause weight gain.
