Hang on! I'm not ignoring you...I will have to look up your medications because I'm unfamiliar with these names. Medications are commonly marketed under different brand names in different countries.

When I looked up mesterolone (Proviron), I found out that it is an anabolic steroid, usually used for bodybuilding. I haven't heard anything about Proviron in particular, however, I do know that steroids in particular can have very unpredictable effects on behavior. Furthermore, anabolic steroids can be dangerous.

Procyclidine is used to counteract the side effects of antipsychotic medications, in your case, of risperidone.

Escitalopram, of course, is Lexapro (here in the US), an SSRI considered a very effective treatment for depression and anxiety.

As far as procyclidine, risperidone, and escitalopram are concerned, I see no particular problems with that combination. Mesterolone, I think, could be problematic for someone with anxiety, schizophrenia, and now, depression.

I think the first step would be to re-evaluate the need for mesterolone.

Hope this helps!

I'm afraid I really don't know much about mesterolone specifically. What I do know is that it is an anabolic steroid, a class of medications that must be used with extreme caution because they can cause psychotic symptoms indistinguishable from those of schizophrenia. They can also cause a breakdown of your immune system. Again, I don't know anything about mesterolone specifically, because it is not available in the US.
