I was diagnosed schyzophrenic when i was 16 and on

This answer was rated:

i was diagnosed schyzophrenic when i was 16 and on risperidone until i was twenty and i had a baby, ive been off it since then but put back on it a couple weeks ago and my symptoms are still getting stronger... these are my symptoms,is it really just schyzophrenia? ive been having personality changes, like angry over little things, violent towards myself, rambling about things i think i might be mad about but came out of nowhere, i hear voices in the background, like someones name being called, but thats only gotten louder lately, ive been doing things completely out of character that i would never usually do, exposing myself to sexual encounters that i hate, but i keep doing it, my visions kind of foggy like im walking around in clouds all the time im very distant from my kids, i have headache when i wake up, very vivid dreams that i have trouble coming out of, and have trouble remembering if it was a dream or an actual memory, and get random ringing in my ears every once in a while... those are the ones ive noticed anyways....any thoughts?


It sounds like your symptoms are are not being adequatelycontrolled by your current medication. I would discuss my symptoms with the doctor with the possibility of either changing dosage or or type. There are many options available now. Best wishes and good luck.
