I had a GeneSight test and this was recommended by my psychiatrist. Because I have very severe anxiety and have been taking 0.5mg Klonopin a day. She has just prescribed 5mg of risperidone to tie me over until hopefully the antidepressant kicks in. Is risperidone in a low dose safe? I am not bipolar but need to quell this anxiety. Can any one help calm me down?
O HI, I would definitely think the antipsychotic will.help until your other med starts working. Yet a big YET I would not take it long term. It could do more harm than good. Yet a short while will be fine. So don't stress about it. Wish you the best of luck. Also you could do meditation on YouTube. They are guided meditations. They will help you breathe and restore calmness and anxiety in the meantime or do it every day. It has helped me tremendously. Good luck. Stay on the positive side!
