Re: My psychotic history

Hi Koolguy

How are you doing?

I have not heard from you for quite sometime. Have you managed to

control your akasthisia?

Re: My psychotic history

I have a theory that this akathesia is caused by supersensitivty of the dopamine d2 receptors in the brain which is made worse by d2 antagonists such as risperidal.

I am coming of risperidal and await the results..

Re: My psychotic history

I've been feeling quite relaxed past two days. Fingers crossed.

synapse321, personally I don't want adderall because of risk of psychosis sometimes caused by adderall. Good luck and I hope best for you.

Hi Koolguy, nice to hear from you once again.

I agree adderall will make the psychosis worse.

Have you been prescribed it?

Regards
