    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

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    I advise everyone urgently from Risperdal and generally also from all other prescribed drugs (or psychotropic drugs). Have in the Internet for long-term studies that could justify a frivolous handling when prescribing the doctors inquired and unfortunately did not find anything. I had the following side effects z.T. for years: insomnia, waking up at night, nightmares, rapid heartbeat, salivation, extreme drive and listlessness, depression, anxiety, loss of appetite, underweight, sweating, feel nothing more Most of the side effects are still there although I have not been for about 3 years Take more medication, and Risperdal also took only 4 months. I find it more than irresponsible that people are unknowingly treated as guinea pigs and then claimed by the occurring placebo effect that the effect would be consistent with the side effects. I am 100% sure that without Risperdal today I would be a livelier and happier person and not a vegetative something. I hope this comment helps someone
