Tried to back off of risperidone completely but I found out that it was helping me with sleep. In particular, without it, I kept waking up over and over again, seemingly every 15 minutes, all night long. I'm back on .5 mg and sleeping okay again.
Took a urine test with Dr. Sc. and I was borderline for having issues assimilating B12, so I'm now taking P5P and Zinc Citrate to help with this. I am feeling remarkably better, back to fairly normal without depression or hypomania. I don't know for sure whether these new supplements helped with this, but I started feeling quite a bit better within a week of taking them. I'm thinking of going surfing - this would have been unthinkable 2 weeks ago.
(I dipped down for a few days because of terrible sleep from trying to get off of risperidone, but I'm now back to 'normal'.)
