    I have been diagnosed with schizophrenia for about a year now. In the last two month I have been feeling extremely suicidal and depressed. I don't have any personal problems. I don't hear any voices are have any hallucinations since I have been taking medication. I am not sure if it is the medication or the sickness that is causing my depression and suicidal thoughts and impulses. I have told my counselor and doctor about it, and my doctor added Zoloft and raised my Lamatical. I also take Geodon. They both told me that it will take a couple of weeks to work. Just hang in there. I am trying, but I still feel suicidal and depressed. Sometime it is so overwhelming and controlling that I have tried to commit suicide, and I have a plan to commit suicide. I am scared,because it is so hard to control. I feel suicidal all the time. I was just wondering if there is anybody else that has schizophrenia feels suicidal and hopeless.

    welcome renee.. like others have said to you, it takes maybe a couple of weeks for medication changes to actually get to where you are going to be with them.. in the meantime, if the urge to end it all becomes overpowering and real darn serious then please reach out quickly to your medical team and get some help.. you take care, Jim
