    Drug certainly definitely mitigated problems, but not decisively. Side effects outweighed. I felt constantly tired, impotent and quite sad.

    The drug should keep me from anxious pondering. Apart from the fact that it did not: Ca. one hour after ingestion, antihistaminergic effects came to the fore, i. Dry mouth and in my case an irresistible fatigue. This was already the case with doses of 0.5 mg and has worsened in the period of use rather: tiredness even after much sleep and coffee. Of course, a no-go for people who react so strongly to this active component.

    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

    The psychotic symptoms (superficial insanity, paranoia, thought disturbances, thought propagation and indulgence – no hearing of voices, hallucinations) went back quite fast, but from the beginning I had muscle stiffness, especially in the facial muscles and problems with swallowing. On the other hand, I got Akineton, which helped a lot. It was particularly bad with the side effects after about 2 months. Depression, listlessness, etc. This was always pushed by my treating physicians on the minus symptoms. After 5 months of Risperdal I was hospitalized a second time with severe depressive syndrome and presuicidal syndrome. Recently I had suicidal thoughts throughout. After resuming hospitalization, the Risperdal was immediately discontinued and I received 10mg Abilify instead. The severe depressive problem was almost completely absent after less than 1 week. The weaning effects were also very strenuous for a few weeks to deal with. However, in retrospect, it was a blessing in exchange for months of thinking about their own funeral, hoping that after falling asleep, you would not wake up and hours on the sofa would only have to gaze at the second hand of the clock. I can not recommend it after my experience.

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    Risperdal has helped against the positive symptoms, after only 2 weeks I was conscious again. However, it caused me at 4.5mg EPS. In addition, then came restless legs, which made me very busy. Because of this and pronounced lack of motivation and language poverty, I switched to Abilify. The prolactin increase went away through Anilify, as did the RLs. also the drive would be better and the linguistic impoverishment. Except for initially insomnia no side effects 🙂 Abilify for me a top drug.

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    Hello dear indivialists and free spirits, because of my then drug use (cannabis, amphetamines), broke out with me a psychosis that made my life a horrible horror trip. I lived in this madness for almost a whole year, searched desperately daily for a solution to this problem, googled symptoms, medical conditions, drugs, etc., until I could not stand it anymore and had mobilized my last strength for fear of premature death and myself dragged into a mental hospital. I have already been in psychiatry 3 times (only 1 week each in the closed ward, then I was transferred to the open as reasonable and harmless). Once there, risperidone was prescribed to me and the psychosis disappeared, my perception was back to normal and the fears disappeared. I was addicted to cannabis for years and saw it as my medicine, but since my last visit I’ve realized that it’s dangerous for me and I’ve played with my life. It probably changed my hormone balance and brain chemistry, so the problems occurred. I can only advise everyone against illegal drugs because they are not checked for their quality and you do not know what else is in it … Now for the actual topic: risperidone. I initially got 3 or 4 mg, this was then reduced to 2 mg after a while and after my last boost (had once drunk alcohol and immediately the psychosis was back) again increased to 4 mg. In the beginning, it really helped against the psychosis, but now it does not work so well and the side effects get more and more intense. In my last year’s check-up with the internist, I was diagnosed with high blood sugar, poor liver values and elevated pancreatic levels. In addition, I see for some time blurry (is probably due to the blood sugar), my potency is limited and I have almost no feeling in the penis. I have not really wanted to have sex since taking it. I was getting lazy and impotent by risperidone, lying on the bed very often and needing to recharge my batteries. The general performance has decreased a lot. In addition, I have gained over 30 kg, which makes my bones constantly under pressure. I do not want to know what’s going on with the organs. I will now crawl it out very slowly and try either to switch to another drug (after consultation with the doctor) or to discontinue it altogether. What else I want to tell you: Accept the system. Even if it is unfair, you should accept what you can not change. Adapt to survive. I used to be a rebel and system opponent. Since I accept it, I’m fine 🙂 You can change / re-program yourself, use this gift to help yourself. If necessary, of course, play it safe and go to the doc, if nothing more should help.

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    I took Resperdal for 2 years. My psychosis was cured, but I was no longer a living person. Incredible to get dressed and brush teeth, then counted the minutes all day, time has stopped. Suicidal thoughts. No feelings, not the slightest interest, inability to read even two pages let alone understand. Speechlessness, I did not remember why one communicates voluntarily at all. Weight gain 20 kilos. Impossible to stand still, I walked in circles all the time or up and down so I preferred to go to bed. All side effects disappeared about a month after weaning. I am a happy person again and if it must be rather psychotic (would of course try other drugs before) as depressed No one has told me that can make Resperdal depressive, I thought I am so any memories of a different life I have with the unreal World of my psychosis.

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    Hello, I was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia 5 years ago. I got Floranxol in the beginning but was constantly tired and impotent. After that, I was given Risperdal Consta as a syringe (depot). Ok, meanwhile I get administered 75mg and must take as needed by the way Seroquel. Although I have about 30 kilos increased and often muscle twitching all over my body but only on the first day, when I get the injection, a little tired. The remaining 13 days until the next injection (fortnightly) I’m in a good mood and motivated. In case of sensory overload, ie hallucinations or hearing loss (hear voices), I take a Seroquel tablet. She works relatively quickly and I am very satisfied with these two drugs. The only drawback: when taking both drugs no matter which, I get cravings attacks. That’s it. Ps: Take care !!

    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

    Risperdal for Psychosis

    At the beginning of the treatment, 4 mg of muscle twitching occurred. I did not have to sweat anymore. The perception disorders were corrected. The period was gone. I had concentration problems, disturbances in memory and could no longer show any feelings. I suffered from drive and disinterest. After I was adjusted to 0.5 mg, the menstruation also started again and I was back in life again. But was also set to Abilify (which increase drive) simultaneously.

    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.
