Hello all,

so I get an automated questionnaire from my health insurance provider (turned out to be phq-2), called into dr office and given phq-9, asked some questions and referred to psychology for counselling and further evaluation.

Diagnosed with dysthymia, gad.

Given lexapro (which did nothing) and eventually diagnosed with Asperger's / high functioning autism and given psychiatrist referral. I am a computer programmer so being formally diagnosed as hfa is a career bonus :mrgreen:

Meds changed several times and put on risperdal after warning about tardive dyskinesia and gynecomastia. risperdal working good for insomnia and sensory overload.

no tardive dyskinesia but a bit of gynecomastia started a bit after a few months (which I'm ok with)

Nice to meet you all.
