Re: am i schizophrenic too?
This doesn't sound to me like schizophrenia.
I've had paranoia since 1995. I have 7 different types and take Risperdal as a result. I've been on Risperdal for a little over 3 weeks and so far, it's working great when used in combination with Clonazepam.
While is it true that not everyone with schizophrenia hear voices, there also need to be other symptoms as well as paranoia. Some of them include disordered thoughts/behaviors, extreme emotional lability and/or catatonia.
It doesn't sound to me like you're exhibiting symptoms of schizophrenia.
I would instead conclude that you have some form of paranoia.
However, I'm not a pdoc, so take my opinion for what it's worth.
Atypical Bipolar I Disorder with Rapid Cycling
Risperdal 1mg titrating to 6mg/day
Klonopin .5mg (2x/day)
Trazodone 100mg or 200mg PRN
