    Risperdal for Sleep disorders; Bipolar disorder; Borderline

    With lamotrigine, I only caused a side effect at 150mg and 200mg. I then screwed down to 100mg. I’m happy with it-only I have the feeling that it does not really help. Mood swings have become less, but not so that the quality of life has increased. Had to take another neuroleptic: risperdal 0.5mg. Even at this low dose, I have been causing side effects: prolactin levels have risen (breast milk), weight gain (6kg), difficulty concentrating and a feeling of indifference, lameness (most of all NOTHING does the whole day). set it down now after 7 months. The settling has brought me no problems. Now take 150mg of Lamotrigine (100mg in the morning, 50mg in the evening) and Molipaxin to sleep, 50mg. No big side effects with Molipaxin (trazodone, like TRITTICO). Do not sleep though. Wake up in the night and need weigs until I can fall asleep. I also have eye pain. Feel great in the morning …

    Risperdal for Mania; Bipolar disorder

    My neurologist prescribed me 1 time in the evening before going to bed 0.25 mg risperidone. I noticed the effect after about half an hour. Strong nausea and headache, absolute loss of appetite with aversion to eating !!! I could not sleep well at night because of the nausea and headache. The next day, the loss of appetite was noticeable. In addition, a numbness and lack of drive. I still took the medication on the second day as prescribed, but on the 3rd day the nausea, headache, and loss of appetite were no longer sustainable! I then split the tablet and took 0.125 mg 1 x before going to sleep, the nausea, headache stopped at night. The lack of appetite has also improved significantly, food is possible, however, I’m pretty fast fed and then can not get down. If it stays that way I would be satisfied! To complain that the effect is not even throughout the day. Positive: after taking my mind is clearer, I have fewer manic seizures, no depressive mood, Aggresivität or irritability more. After I last took lithium and thus increased 20 kg, I am pleased if that would continue with the little hunger. Reported as soon as I clarified the reduced dose with my doctor and could gain new experience with the drug.

    Side effects: Anorexia; Nausea; Headache
