Can haldol (haloperidol) cure histrionic personality disorder?

Personality disorders can be treated with medication if indicated by a doctor. However, personality disorders are long-standing, and aren't cured with medications. ...Read more

Taking 225mg Effexor&Clonazepam 4 Major Dep Dis&anxiety&paranoid thoughts. Had Olanzapine&Respiridone before but is Abilify (aripiprazole) ok2take with Effexor?

Abilify (aripiprazole): It appears that you are also experiencing paranoid thoughts, and have been treated for depression. At the same time, if your doctor prescribes the Abilify (aripiprazole), (aripiprazole) with or without the Clonazepam, there is no contraindication. The Abilify (aripiprazole) might also augment the Effexor as an antidepressant, which is another advantage for this recommendation. ...Read more

Bipolar(controlled -lamictal, carbamazepine), anxiety-semi-under control (lorazepam, temazepam, cymbalta) and ADD problematic- considering Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) ?

Bipolar(controlled -lamictal, carbamazepine), anxiety-semi-under control (lorazepam, temazepam, cymbalta)  and ADD problematic- considering Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) ?

So much medication: It might be necessary to take some drugs but I question the risks already and adding the new one is especially bad w/ cymbalta (duloxetine). It can cause severe anxiety! Also serotonin syndrome. Almost all of your meds combine to cause a host of symptoms like dizziness, confusion and general impairment. Please consider a good psych eval and adding good psychotherapy to lower need for Rx and help them work! ...Read more

Can geodon (ziprasidone) withdrawal cause schizophrenia?

No: If someone is taking Geodon (ziprasidone) for schizophrenia, it acts to alleviate schizophrenic symptoms. So if the medication is stopped and it has controlled psychotic symptoms (like hearing voices) , these are likely to return. Commonly people stop antipsychotics misunderstanding that it is the medication controlling symptoms. The cause of schizophrenia is in part genetic but the cause is not clear. ...Read more
