I do the exact (EXACT!!!!) same thing. I started before I took any medication, and I never mentioned it to my dr. she put me on paxil, and a week later put me on risperidone (2 mg). Both drugs helped w/ my other symptoms, like depression and hearing voices, but it hasn't done anything for me talking to myself. I never really thought of it as a problem, but I usually do it in my car, and sometimes I have to catch myself if I'm in a parking lot, because someone might see me talking to myself. I can control it if I know I'm doing it, but sometimes I don't know whether i'm talking to myself or just thinking about something. Another problem is that most of the time, I distort what I remember, and that changes what I think happened, so half the stuff I think happens never actually occured. I know that it's not the normal thing to do, but I never thought that it could be a mild case of schizophrenia. Now I'm so afraid of telling my dr. about this.
