I have depression from 6-7 yrs. Ist. Doctor advice me to take risperdal 6 mg and than after two mths another dr. advice for arip instead of risperidal. but problem is not sorted and she adviced to take both, is it effective. pl. guide me
It sounds like they are treating the hallucinations. but not the depression. The drugs you are on aren't antidepressants. They would help an antidepressant if you were on one, but not without one. They are good medications if you have hallucinations. I would try to keep the same dr treating me, and make sure you tell her your depression is still there. You would something like sertraline or venlafaxine too.
