I've been cutting down my antipsychotic respiridone for some time. Each step I have trouble sleeping at first because it's a bit of a sedative taken before bed, but that's been ok. Anyway, the last step down to zero was a couple of days ago and ever since I've been hot and cold and shivery and utterly exhausted and easily confused. It doesn't feel like a bug, it feels like when I used to be on seroxat years ago if I missed a dose. I know respiridone interacts with the fluoxetine I'm on making it more potent so I'm wondering if this could be a reaction or if I'm sick. Anyone got any advice?
