Default Re: Surprising new research on schizophrenia meds

I'm on both risperidone and seroquel. The risperidone is an adjunct to my 2 anti-d's and helps with my mood. The serquel helps a lot with my anxiety. But I sometimes feel like a pharmaceutical's guinea pig. I'm worried about long term effects as I'm on relatively high doses of all my meds. But I figure it's a trade off, being able to live relatively well in the short term vs longevity. I come from a notoriously long lived family on my Dad's side (100+'s are normal), so I figure I can afford to lose a few years.
