    Risperdal for Psychosis

    I only had a relatively mild psychosis. At first I took 4mg daily. Now, nine years later, only 0.5mg. The only side effect was a weight gain. However, since the drug was lowered to 1mg, I have my old weight again. Four years ago I had a psychosis before. Triggered by lack of sleep, change of environment and permanent hashish consumption. Risperdal is a blessing compared to haloperidol (the first psychosis drug). The side effects are low. Being human, as another patient writes here, I have not lost through Risperdal. Even with 4mg per day, you are a bit slower, but not psychotic. The only question is: should it now, although low doses, but take forever?

    Risperdal for Schizophrenia

    I’ve been taking risperdal for 1.1 / 2 years now. Mentally, I am wonderful. Did not have any relapse since taking the drug. Physically, however, I have been getting worse and worse since then. Weight gain since taking 20kg, asthma attack, allergic reaction bursitis. inflammation of the upper respiratory tract lung infections .. At first I did not associate these with risperdal. But when I had to go to the clinic without much breath. And you could not really tell where it came from. I did my own research. Risperdal has psychologically stabilized me. But physically crippled. Hope it is reversible.

    Risperdal for Obsessive compulsive disorder

    I take the drug because I have fears and compulsions and Asperger’s autism. I was recommended the drug by a psychiatry. Since I take these tablets (0,5mg / evening) I am clearly not as hectic as before and the fears and constraints are still there but wessentlich better. But the whole thing has a disadvantage I have about 15 kg increased within about one year, as these tablets stimulate hunger. That was very hard for me. I am now again from these pounds abzunehem which works very hard.

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    So in 2004 I had about 90kg weight, now I have about 112 and always hungry. I also had diabetes grade 1, the ophthalmologist told me because of my vision defect. I get a 50mg Risperdalspritze every 14 days. I wanted to reduce it to 25mg twice but my psychologist was against it. Probably I will change to another doctor, a second opinion can not hurt.

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    After the first psychotic episode in 2003, I was hired on Risperdal. At high doses (> 2mg) I had muscle stiffness in my feet that often prevented me from jogging as I could no longer walk with my foot. Under Risperdal, however, I successfully completed a university degree and completed a full-time internship. So it seems to increase the performance. Slight gain in weight but tolerable at low dose (0.5 mg). After second psychosis in 2010 again treatment with Risperdal, but now double medication with Zeldox. The latter made me very tired, also it has, as it turned out, increased my liver values and worsened the ECG values. For this reason, Zeldox and also Risperdal (the latter because of my limited motor skills) discontinued. Conversion 2011 on Solian (Amisulprid), since then no more complaints.

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    I have gained 8 kg under Risperdal consta in a relatively short time. Furthermore, it was applied to me in spite of heart failure (right thigh block) – since it is prolonging QT interval was warned in the Wikipedia under contraindications. As part of the current hospital stay, I have thereby received anxiety attacks associated with heartache (fear-flutter, stings). The doctors here hardly care about the side effects. since it was sprayed on depot I feel pretty helpless with the drug. I can only advise against it. get extreme pimples, no orgasm, no sense of sexuality. at the beginning of two, three weeks only visual impairment (short-sightedness), which disappeared after its own reduction of the dose (secret swallowing of the oral gift which was administered to the depot).

    Risperdal for Borderline

    I got 4mg of Risperdal at Gö University Hospital because I behaved in a state of emergency during treatment with my panic attacks. The drug was very fast and reliable. Unfortunately, in my case, it also favored various side effects: disproportionate fatigue and drowsiness, eating and obesity (20 kilograms in less than 6 months), indifference, strong emotional and emotional fluctuations, very strong emotional numbness in the sexual area due to numbness in the penis as well as ejaculation disorders and erection problems , Increased urinary retention and also listlessness, physical inactivity and very strong gastrointestinal problems. Overall, I advise against taking the drug because the side effects are significantly greater than the benefit. After 2 years, I noticed the drug’s inefficiency, because I’m more likely to interfere with this drug myself than it would help me. In particular, by the very strong sleep inducing effect one is hereby unable to cope with everyday life. As a short-term medication over a period of up to 14 days in acute phases, however, I would take it.

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    I got Pisperdal consta after a psychosis. In the first eight weeks, I gained seven kilos. My hair went out, I had milk flow but the drug was not discontinued. It was then the rule and I have no sexual desire more. I am constantly tired and sleep 13 hours a day. I then continued to gain five pounds. Now I’m switched to Zeldox so I do not increase anymore. In addition, another attitude to life should set in again. I can not recommend Risperdal consta

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    From 11.2010 to 04.2011, risperidone taken 0.5 mg a day, which as far as I beakannt me is not a high dose. Negative: A weight gain of about 10kg. A funny urge to run back and forth, like the animals in the zoo. Was in the meantime at 2 mg a day, because the ingestion would call ‘brain fucking’, I did not run out of drool from the mouth was everything, then the dose to 0.5 mg reduced (yes in ‘consultation’ with the doctor ). Positive / Negative: A white noise in the head, so no more thoughts when you’re alone. Positive: any strangely absurd thoughts are gone, no intense pondering or anything else that has helped me. Overall conclusion: risperidone I can only recommend if it really is not good and you really massive in pondering over very strange Abstruse things loses. Fatal I think that one also gives children, unfortunately they can not fight against it if it is too much.

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    Had Solian against psychosis and helped me not really, the symptoms became very weak less and I had a total unrest from the drug. I could not sleep well and was totally fidgety in my legs. The only good thing about it was, I felt like moving but if you want to sleep in the evening and you still have to move then that is of course not great. Well, by and large, I was not satisfied and then switched to risperidone! And I myself can give the drug risperidone 10 out of 10 points in all. I tolerated it super and the symptoms diminished very quickly. I was able to sleep well and it helped against my depression and discomfort. The only thing was, I have gained a lot, but in my case was also more desirable, but I had that of Solian too! In the first few weeks, the drug blunts off a lot, but I’ve already heard of many psychotropic drugs, but that can also relax and the feelings come (or with me) again. I can only recommend Risperidone!
