    Risperdal for Drive disorders; Psychosis

    After the first 2-3 weeks I did not notice anything from Citalopram, but after the 3rd week I got a real boost and was also much better off. For a long time I’m not so susceptible to stress anymore, somehow everything is much better off and my sleep behavior has changed for the better, catch up faster and get fit again after 7 hours. I have side effects, except for some loss of libido, but within limits, no. After about 5 months, the drive has slowed again, but does not necessarily have to be on Citalopram. All in all, I am very satisfied with citalopram and wonder if I should agree on an increase from 20 to 40 mg.

    Risperdal for Schizophrenia

    I received a Risperdaldepot 37.5 mg every 14 days in 2008 and have since complained that I lost my libido. Some time ago I was switched to Seroquel 300mg daily. I feel much better now, but my libido loss has gotten worse. Now I live as well as without sex. I try to provoke an orgasm from time to time, but it feels like I’ve already had sex. I am no longer aroused and have no interest in sleeping with my partner anymore. Risperdal has killed my libido! Of course I would like to have sexual feelings the same way as before but I have little hope that my problem could get better over time. I feel castrated and my self-esteem is down.

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    Recovery precludes a psychosis with Risperdal, since you immediately slip into a new psychosis when you want to settle due to libido and erection problems. So you are fast in a vicious cycle that the pharmaceutical industry takes heed! Stay away from chemistry of metabolism rather should not be messed up! rather a therapy with talks, I advise everyone concerned!

    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 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

    I took Risperdal 6 months the effectiveness was ok. It hardly makes you tired. After about four months of taking it I was then Stammpatient the urologist it came to significant sexual dysfunction in particular erectile dysfunction libido and pain in the penis and testes, also I have the impression of a creeping penile retraction (shrinking) what I experience with some severe pain, only the Morgenerektion, which comes every now and then reached halfway normal size almost no GV more possible. I stopped it about 8 months ago but there are no signs of improvement on the contrary !! Potency drugs like Levitra help but also only the erection. Testosterone replacement therapy provides for violent interactions and in part achieves the opposite of what it is supposed to do. I feel with the situation left alone by the doctors, general practitioners and urologists can not help me because no one can tell me what the drug is exactly in the body and if it degrades, psychiatrists do not want to know of side effects and Lanzeitschäden (probably it would be psychosomatic ) I am after 8 months hardly hope for recovery will now try to obtain from the health insurance company to take over impotence Furthermore, I will speak with a lawyer about recourse claims against the manufacturer for long-term damage while I make little hope in the second. Conclusion: There is no disease in open psychiatry that justifies the administration of such a substance !!

    Risperdal for Dissociative disturbance; Borderline; Depression

    Venlafaxin: I was pretty sick at the beginning and I felt restless. In the evening I had sleep problems, which I actually have, but I felt it was getting worse. This went away after 4 weeks but the sleep problems remained. The dose had to be increased, after the 4 weeks, however, and the same started from the beginning. I also had absolute libido problems at the beginning. In the meantime, I got the maximum dose of 375 mg, which later was reduced to 225 mg, which I then took until recently, because it just did not bring much and I got another drug (Elontril). It helped a lot against my impulsivity in the beginning, but later it got more and more relaxed. Later in the case means after about 2 years. Other medicines such as Cymbalta or other sertonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors, however, have done nothing. Risperidone: Risperidone left me relatively relaxed and a little tired, but otherwise I did not experience any side effects. I took 2 mg of it a day. My susceptibility to fall into a dissotiation was noticeably lower and I felt better with this drug. Clonidine: From clonidine, I realized that I was calmer and did not feel the urge to hurt myself. I had no side effects. Neurocil: From Neurocil I noticed a fast sedative effect, which was very strong for me. I just wanted to sleep afterwards and had problems talking. My thoughts were very funny and totally confused.

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    Seroquel helps me to live with my psychosis. Helps me to distinguish between illusion / voices and reality. But has NW, NW, NW … I have in the 1st year Seroquel almost 60kg! increased. One kg more each week! At first insane hunger, could eat without end. I pulled the food brake after 2 months, in vain. Seroquel made me lethargic, indifferent, fat. In the 2nd year I got diabetes type II, Who wonders? With diabetes, its companion: high cholesterol and triglycerin levels. Only the blood pressure is correct (so straight). I am restricted in movement due to another previous illness. Can barely walk, just stand there for a moment. Seroquel came, my libido (lust from sex) went. My menstruation too. In between, I stopped the medication for 1 year, unfortunately all NW remained, the psychosis became stronger. Now I am on Seroquel Prolong for 2 months, 50% of the Seroquel dose. Let’s see. Because of the strong unwanted NW, I was once switched to Truxal, total failure: I continued to + had teeth chattering day and night, did not go. Abilify was also tried: had a terrible flashback, did not help. Risperdal was pure horror at the setting (worst stomach cramps, vomiting up to 6 times a day, after 3 weeks it was ok, after 3 months breast milk shot in, I dripped like ice at 30 ° C. I was not pregnant, so it stayed that way at Seroquel.

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    For 1.5 years I take Risperdal after a schizoaffective psychosis. At the moment I take 2 mg. So far, I’ve had two minor relapses, and I had to increase the dose to 4 mg. I did not get into an acute crisis anymore. However, I already complain about a significant loss of quality of life. So the emotional life is very limited. I am now extremely uncreative, I am not very talkative and feel somehow slowed down and driveless. My libido suffers too much. These side effects also occur at a lower dose. I also gained 8 kg.
