Re: Risperdal for extreme fear and anxiety? Tiina

Hi Tiina,

The critical thing to know about fear is whether it is psychotic or not. What exactly are you afraid of?

If your fear is not psychotic then the AP's might not help very much. If your fear is psychotic, however, the AP's might be extremely helpful.

There is really no way of telling what drug is most effective for a specific person. In clinical studies all the atypical antipsychotics (with the exception of clozapine) are pretty much equivalent for treating psychosis. My advice would be to keep trying the different drugs until you find one that works well.
