Risperidal/Risperidone???? - August 26th 2012, 11:30 PM

Does anybody take Risperidal or Risperidone? I was told I might get put on it and wanted to know how they felt while on it... I am a little scared of it and was hoping I could get out of them thinking I need to take it. Any advice on this would help

Risperidal is a newer antipsychotic used to treat a large variety of mental illnesses that may present with psychosis or mania. Examples of these are schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, etc..

Nobody will be able to tell you how you will respond to a new medication as their effects can vary greatly from person to person.
When I was taking Risperidal I felt slow, like all my thoughts and motor activities were placed in slow motion. I also had some troubles with problem solving while on it and so my doctor and I felt it wasn't a good fit for me and we decided to try something else.
That being said I've heard stories and know people who felt this medication changed their lives for the better and feel great on it. Like I said, everyone is different.

If your doctor feels this medication could help you I say try it. If it doesn't work out or you don't like it you can always ask your doctor to try something else.

Hi there.

I was put onto this medication for psychotic symptoms. I was started it on a nigh time and was told I needed to take the next day of school which turned out to be a good thing. The next morning, I was sick and couldn't keep my eyes open or even walk. By the afternoon my mum rang my psychiatrist who contacted my doctors and booked me in for an emergency appointment for tests and the decision was made to take me off it. Saying that, I tend to have bad re-actions to medication and everyone reacts differently to everything. All I can say is try it. If it makes you feel seriously ill, seek medical help. You might have slight side affects which isn't abnormal and these could take a week or so to start to pass and its best to try and stick them out if you can.

I hope all goes well for you
Jessie
