From this study (12 months ago):
I'm moody and irritable and have feelings of being lonely, although I have lots of friends/family. I don't really see much change, if any in the 6 months I've been on meds.the resperidone was just added 8 days ago and 2 nights ago I thought I heard someone talking to me. My parents think I was just half asleep since it was 5am, but wanted to make sure it wasn't an adverse reaction to the meds.
