    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 Aggressiveness

    At the beginning of March 2011, I was ordered to take Risperdal and Truxal during an emergency room at a psychiatric hospital by the local senior physician, but I did not want to, but eventually had to. It started at a dose of 2.5 mg per day. Within the first 2 weeks the only side effects were severe tiredness, which is why I was almost only in bed. After about 2 weeks without dose change then set several side effects simultaneously. I was plagued by bad depression, so I often had suicidal thoughts. I’ve never been depressed before and am otherwise a very cheerful personality. There were then involuntary muscle twitching all over the body (but mostly on the upper arms, thighs and eyes) added. I was suddenly scared of things that had never scared me before (like the moonlight). My language was also very unclear, washed out and slow. My anger problem, I got despite the medication only very limited in the grip. When I told my doctors, the dose was reduced to 1 mg per day. Although I insisted on a definitive withdrawal of medication, my doctors did not speak at this point. The side effects of anxiety, mild speech disorders, fatigue and depression became less and less until finally they disappeared almost completely. However, until the definitive discontinuation of the drug in early November 2011, I sometimes had mild depression (inner sense of emptiness). After stopping the drug, all side effects disappeared, except for the involuntary muscle twitching, which still occurs relatively frequently (January 2012). Today, my aggression and anger problems are much better under control than before or while taking the medication. If I look back today, I find that the drug almost did not help me at all, and has even given me additional problems. As far as my personal experience with the drug Risperdal.

    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.
