  • Can invega (basically risperdal) cause manic episodes?

    iv been taking invega for a few days now, and contrary to prior treatments (abilify, seroquel, and effexor which i still take now) i've noticed a vast improvement in my social anxiety. almost as though i'm excited to socializing with people. iv been prescribed invega for psychotic depression due to two psychotic episodes the second which led to attempted suicide. however i'm concerned that i might be misdiagnosed bipolar because i'm so extremely sociable right now. on one hand i see that as a possibility but on the other hand i see this is as just a release from my reticence to socialize with others. i have SO much that i want to say to others now that i often go two or three minutes talking without pause. however there still seems to be some residual anxiety i.e. physical symptoms more than emotional, or on the surface i seem normal but internally i'm *somewhat* anxious depending on how long the social situation lasts. i also recognize this is a temporary state and it's not a permanent solution to a problem, and therefore cbt and other forms of therapy are needeed to help me really get stay grounded rather than being "superficially" happy. thus one of my other questions is how long invega will take to keep working or how long it will be til i develop a resistance to it. but going back to the bipolar thing, if it isn't true that it's a manic episode then out of curiosity, how is the invega helping me? (it's prescribed for people with schzo affect or schizo but psychotic depression? are they one and the same, more like the latter being a more pleasant way of saying schizophrenia or something?) i think it should be noted that my psychologist has said that i exhibit many symptoms of autism (asperger's) so this might explain everything? i'm sorry im just so obsessive, particularly i'm uncomfortable about the potential label of schizophrenia, is the difference between PD and Schzophrenia that psychotic episodes are less frequent in the former and more frequent in the latter? PLEASE address everything iv said if you care enough to answer. and please state your credentials, if you wouldn't mind id like to see if there could be proof of those credentials. thank you for your time.

  • What will the GP do about this?

    I saw the GP last tuesday about depression and some major emotional problems i am having due to a trauma a few years back. He gave me a question sheet to fill in about how well i am sleeping, suicidal thoughts that sort of thing. I OD about 10 years ago,and feeling that way again, although for the time being it is not something i am actively planning. Both my GP and counsellor now this. GP talking about anti-depressants got to decide tomorrow, but my counsellor wants a low dosage of Valium for when things get really hard to bare, i am in alot of emotional pain and the counselling is going to take time, he wants a safety net. My question is what is the GP likely to do?
