My name is ***** *****. I have been on anti phsychotic drugs…

Customer Question
Hi my name is...

Hi my name is ***** *****. I have been on anti phsychotic drugs and anti-depresents for 15 years due to Phsychosis. Im am much better now but still get anxiety. I can tell it coming on as my vision changes. All colour gets brighter particularly yellows and already bright colours. If Im watching tv all the pixels are pronounced as are any details in anything really however I wouldnt say vision gets better as sometimes I get slight double vision. It is very distressing I dont know why it brings on the anxiety. Could you help thanks.

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I just came off olanzapine and feel better but and think this may have caused it over time but even looking at certain websights or going for a walk in the evening brings it on. I seem fine in the first part of the day doing anything. A hundred different things can bring it on.

Hi Im on Escitalipram, Amisulpride and Ziprasidone.
Neurologist: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 2 years ago

You are currently taking an antidepressant and two atypical antipsychotics, and the olanzapine that was recently stopped was another atypical antipsychotic. If you are continuing to have anxiety while in this regimen, there are several option of medicines that can be used by your doctor, but I would usually consider adding a second antidepressant that works by a different mechanism, such as Wellbutrin or trazodone. Another option would be to add a medicine that directly treats the anxiety, such as buspirone.

If I can provide any clarification, please let me know.
