hi! I was prescribed paxil at first, then my doctor put me on risperidone, which is mainly used for schizophrenia, too. Did you tell your dr. that you heard voices, or wanted to hurt yourself? I did hear voices (actually, I still do, but it's not too bad now...but they haven't gone away), so my dr. put me on an anti'psychotic. It's really helped me out a lot, but it's really dumbed me! The drug I took had so many side-effects. Sometimes I can't stop shaking, and I couldn't put sentences together. I'd just tell people that I was tired, and that's why I couldn't talk. Sorry that this isn't put together too well. I hope that things get better for you. Being on an anti-psychotic has made a difference in my life, but it has so many negative effects! Let me know if you have any more questions or anything.
