Hi Chinaboy,

Thank you for your reply. It helps to understand that you've received different diagnoses from different psychiatrists, and I think that that can obviously leave patients like us confused as to what's going on with us. I think that it makes sense to go forward with a treatment plan at this point while accepting some uncertainty as far as your diagnosis is concerned and to see if your responses to medications might provide you and your doctors with some clues concerning the nature of your disorder. I can't say that I know enough about medication combos to say whether or not any problems might arise from taking the three medications that you're taking together, but the fact that you at least seem to be tolerating the antidepressants that you're taking, combined with fact that you experienced zombie-like feelings while taking risperidone, has me leaning toward viewing your symptoms more as mood-related symptoms than as symptoms that might be related to a psychotic disorder. Of course, that's just my non-professional opinion as a fellow patient with a mental illness, but that's what I think.

So, how are you doing on the combination of antidepressants that you're taking?
