    Risperdal for Psychosis

    I am very disappointed … because I am told that I am ill and medi even more sick …. panic and relapses with violent trembling alternate, I can not recommend it. before that I had seroquel, where I will go back again. All in all, I can say that the side effects are really violent, and one wonders what one would rather live with … with the symptoms of a psyschose (fierce discussions, where a good circle of friends helps, anger and more or less more violent delusions and self-talk (hearing voices, ect) or these most violent anxiety states and that in front of the best friends or family ….

    Risperdal for Sleep disorders

    First at night 0.25 mg good experiences, better sleep, increase sexual feelings for about 1 month. Then the effect subsided. Gradually to maintain the effect with consultation of the neurologists until June increased to 2 mg in the evening. Increasing marked dreams and certain moods acted as a side effect. It reinforced my fear of the final that everything once passes and never returns. I brought this mood change not in connection with the side effects in the leaflet. Shortly after raising Risperidal to 2 mg in June 2010, I got severe depression, with this fear of the final and nothing from the past. I had more of the side effects on the leaflet. It took me 2 weeks to find the reasons for my depression at Risperidal. Since the end of June 2010, I have discontinued Risperidan. Still have these depressions, restlessness and anxiety that need to be treated with Seroquel, Lyrica, Pipamperon and Lorazepam. The drug has reduced my quality of life and I advise to be careful. If I had known that before, I would not have taken this medication.

    Risperdal for Depression

    I was prescribed Risperdal for depression. The doctor assured me that this was the usual application and studies had proven the effectiveness (according to my research both untrue). Side effects started already an hour later, unbearable spasms in the legs accompanied by infernal pain. The doctor assured me that would settle (I had the impression she just does not believe me). The pain became stronger, my depression increased to an unprecedented level and I had nightmares that I woke up sweaty every night. Finally, I discontinued the drug on my own responsibility, the side effects then lessened within a good week again. Experience has shown that other doctors are crazy about prescribing the stuff no matter what.
