    I was given this as an adjunct to depressive therapy as as suffering from major depression with psychotic features.

    With Risperdal if I missed a treatment, the hallucinations would begin again,but withthis medicine I don't even think about weird ideas. It's great. I had been told by someone that non-name brands didn't work, but they were wrong. (I'm on generic).
