My husband is currently changing medications moving from Orlanzapine (sp) to Risiprodol (sp). He is really anxious, especially at night. Saying he “doesn’t have SZ” that that “people are just making it up”.
Have you found that it gets worse when they are on two medications as they step down from one and transition to a new one? He isn’t in psychosis just really agitated.
Also - what has everyone’s experience been with CBT Therapy for SZ? Especially for someone who thinks there is nothing “wrong” with them and that it’s all of us “messing” with them. I am not sure what else I should be looking for in a provider other than CBT training, Trauma informed (my husband has trauma from childhood that was never addressed) and compassionate.
Thank you all and I hope everyone has a little breathing room today!
