I take 80 milligrams fluoxetine. Can I also be prescribed risperidone for anxiety?
No it is not a narcotic. Some people can benefit from antipsychotics for anxiety, but that's up to whether the doc thinks that'd be good for you.
Risperidone is not indicated for use for anxiety at all and 80mg is a large dose of fluoxetine. If anxiety is a major issue for you and the use of benzodiazepines is not indicated then maybe a different SSRI would make a difference.
