My Mood: Psychiatrist thinks I may be able to start reducing meds

Default Psychiatrist thinks I may be able to start reducing meds

I just started a new job, and it's proving to be a real boost to my mental health. But one of the challenges I'm facing is that I've been told that I'm slow. I know speed will come with experience, but there's also the reality that I'm on 3 highly sedating meds, Seroquel, Risperidone,and Clonazepam.


My psychiatrist is leaving me on my current dose of everything for now, but wants me to experiment with trying to lower some of the doses I'm on.


I'm going to try cutting back on the seroquel first, as it's the most sedating.


I'm just happy that he wants to try reducing my meds.

Thanks everyone,



Well I didn't get the job after all. But I'm still going to try to reduce some of my meds.

I'm sorry you didn't get the job. I'm glad that you might be able to reduce your meds though. That's great! Kit.
