In reply to RISPERDAL + ADDERALL, posted by GOLFER1983 on June 11, 2011, at 18:44:28

> Hi All -
> I am a 27 year old male and used to have textbook social phobia and fear of being around a lot of people. The past year, it turned into more OCD and obsessive thoughts (What if I go crazy? What if I harm someone? etc.). We tried all SSRI's which made anxiety worse and the doctor put me on low dose Risperdal (.25mg at night).

it is odd there is little overlap in the study of stimulants and atipsychotics. i would guess low dose, espcially at different times of day, use would cause an improvement. i would not use a high dose though.

stimulants usually increase confidence. this may be part of the benefit of MAOIs for anxiety. i don't know if taking a drug that is currently giving you EPS is a good idea, though that is a very low dose of risperdal.
