Thank you for being here.My last Risperidone reduction happened 4 weeks ago,from 1,45 ml to 1,40 ml.As for Mirtazapine still four weeks ago I started taking 1,87 mg two times a week,3,75 mg the rest of the week.The fact is during the holiday I felt well and calm,starting a new year stressed me a lot as I could only think of new problems.Should I stop taking the Carbamazepine?I started to go to the gym to cope with stress,but it is very hard to feel energized for that,mentally and physically.I started to go to church and I am trying to pray.I do everything with very big efforts.Staying to work has become a struggle also.
