More on RISPERIDONE: Reviews Summary  |  Drug Safety Information

 1  Depression with psychotic features Blurred vision, lethargy (would go to bed at 6pm), tired in the morning/trouble getting up, 65 pound weight gain (could also have been the Mirtazapine), feeling “out of it,” could not feel effects of alcohol or caffeine, no periods, hyperprolactenemia, breast enlargement, lactation, constipation It's kind of hard for a pill to make you stop believing something that actually happened just because the doctors decided you have no credibility due to your concurrent anxiety and depression issues. May have helped my emotions somewhat but hard to tell because I was so drugged up in a stupor. Either way... NOT WORTH the extreme weight gain. Beware of this drug. I've been off of it 7 months and the weight problems and metabolic issues persist. This drug makes women infertile. If you are a man you may grow breasts. F 38 3 months

 1  sleep I had a a pain down left arm and left leg at the same time after taking 1 pill. It went down in my fingers. I thought it was a blood clot. It lasted 2 months. I went to the doctor and he said it was called nerve something. It was very painful. He never gave me anything for it. Don't take that poison. I was reading some of the comments on this drug and I am like O MY GOD. I figure I better warn people too. I felt a little groggy after the pill but thank god I stopped. I hope it don't cause more complications down the road. I didn't know it was for schizophrenia, that makes no sense that they gave it to me for sleep. The drug companies are the schizos. They should make them take their own medacine. M 25 1 days

 1  Psychosis Restlessness/akathisia, blurred vision, slurred speech, headaches, severe anxiety & panic attacks. Risperidone left me feeling like I had brain damage. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. F 33 6 weeks
 4  extreme emotions, trauma I started at .5 and gradually moved to 1 mg. some tiredness in the morning but not bad. It is a glue that pulls all of your extreme emotions together so you don't feel so out of control. Dealing with trauma that happened earlier in life. I literally feel like demons are attacking me. This drug is making life livable. I'm supposed to start taking an antidepressant next week. This is the only med I've ever taken that doesn't give me bad side effects. F 55 2 weeks

 2  Prescribed for Schizophrenia Extreme wakefullness for approximately an hour followed by complete disorientation and impaired thinking and decision making and increased aggression due to mental incapacity and fall asleep quickly. Usually feel good/better the next morning but groggy and flat emotional response. Memory loss and intolerance to bright light. Nonetheless risperidone is far better than haloperidol., chlorpromazine or fluaxonol injection. M 28 2 years
 2  irratability, anxiety, insomnia "floating" feeling, hungover feeling in the morning, minor bodily aches, emotionally numb It worked very well for the insomnia. Once I got the timing right, I would feel very sleepy when it kicked in, go to bed, and stay asleep. I was even able to quit taking Ambien. That said, it did not take away the anxiety or irritability, but numbed any positive emotions (happiness, excitement, love). I just didn't feel like myself and wanted to quit the drug immediately, which I did, which was a horrible idea as I had major crying jags and paranoia. So I weaned myself off and feel much better. I'd rather live with anger and anxiety than the feelings this drug gave me. F 23 45 days

 1  Anxiety What can i say What's that movie Monkey something??? I felt like i was in a movie, bad one at that. Then i ate everything in the fridge like a crazy person! and got all fat :( no thank you wigged out not even here. M 44 1 months

 1  Psychosis No emotions, flat, depressed, walking around in a zombie like condition, sucidal thoughts, empty feeling,despair, twitching, drooling Oh my god you can not be serious, they are prescribing me a drug which makes me worse than I am. It has no benefit except tranquillise. Read Robert Whitaker"Mad in America" the real truth behind the use of antipsychotic is that they make you more psychotic. These drugs damage your brain. Get off them today. The only way to deal with mental illness is rest recuperation exercise good diet no sugar meditation yoga acupuncture and positivity through friendsand family M 32 4.5 months

 2   a feeling of heaviness/"depression" in my heart and head, hopelessness/despair, brooding thoughts, prolactin increase, light period. not fun. horrible overall. stopped drug almost cold turkey. physical depression started to lift. lots of anxiety though. possibly the worst I've ever had. almost nautious. queezy feeling in body. insomnia. mental depression and despair. brooding thoughts. think my withdrawl lasted about a week and a half and I'm slowly coming out of it. (relief). oh, and then there was the odd nightmare like scene I had as I tried to drift into sleep. not fun. pretty scary. F 32 6 weeks
1 2X D
 3  borderline personality disorder So far, I've had terrible insomnia. When I do force myself to sleep, I have constant nightmares. I'm really worried about all of the side effects that people are saying, like the weight gain. I haven't noticed anything like that, but I've only been on the medication for a week. F 19 7 days
.5 1X D
 3  Drug Induced Psychosis greater problems with communicating(more so than usual), anxiety with blushing(I get this on all antipsychotics), Waking up early in the morning, man boobs may have gotten larger, at least at least I've noticed there more defined :), slight feeling of being drugged up. So far its the best antipsychotic I've been on, which doesnt say much about the use of these types of substances. Unlike Olanzapine and Seroquel I dont feel the need to sleep 14+ hours a day which is nice. Has it helped with the voices? Yes a bit... there more constant but less intense. I'll probably be getting my dose put up this week. Mood wise I prefer the it when im of my medication then when im dosed up on antipsychotics which may be because im more psychotic with out them but I doubt it M 25 3 months

RISPERIDONE  (RISPERIDONE):  Risperidone is used to treat certain mental/mood disorders (such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, irritability associated with autistic disorder). This medication can help you to think clearly and take part in everyday life. Risperidone belongs to a class of drugs called atypical antipsychotics. It works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural substances in the brain.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
