    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

    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 Depression

    I was in my early 20s when I got Risperdal monthly as a custodian. At that time I was in a depressive state. After taking Risperdal, diffuse fears and social withdrawal were added. More than half of my hair fell off, I did not get any menstruation, had muscle rigidity, was no longer able to wash my hair independently or unscrew a Selte bottle, Muscle weakness. My prolactin level was elevated, which leads to an increase of male hormones in the woman. I felt like I had sex and so did others. Facial stiffness expressed itself in the fact that other people constantly asked me why I stare at them so questioningly. That came from the Risperdal.
