Risperdal Consta

How many mgs of Risperdal Consta are released daily from the 2 week shot of 12.5? Additionally my son had an awful reaction to Invega when it first came out. So far so good on the Risperdal Consta..was just wondering if he transitions to the Invega Sustanna (4 week) dose would be different and why? ## There are 2 mgs. released daily in the 12.5 two week shot. My son also had a misrable reaction to the Invega when it first came out although it's supposed to filter thru the kidneys and therefore be easier on the liver. After the 4th week he wants to take the Sustanna too & I'm scared because when any medication is changed there are problems. I think its due to the upload and then download that causes the weird reactions. Slow titration seems to be a better avenue. ...

risperdal with ativan
2 Replies RSS
My psychiatrist prescribed me 1mg of Ativan as well as 2 mg of Risperdal. Everything that I've read says you shouldnt take them together. I took my Risperdal about an hour ago but I'm having panic attacks. is it safe to take the ativan? ## I took those 2 medications together for about 8 months and never had any problems. I was also taking Lamictal and Lexapro at the same time. I hope this helps! ## @Amanda, I just wanted to add that according to umm.edu's drug interaction checker, there aren't any discrepancies/interactions listed between Risperdal and Ativan. So based off that, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to take them together, unless instructed otherwise by your doctor. One thing to keep in mind though is that these medications do tend to af... ...

Risperdal Withdrawal
2 Replies RSS
I was prescribed Risperdal because I was having grandiose delusions. I was taking 3mg for about 6 months. To say the least it has been a rough 6 months. The drug changed everything about me, it is difficult for me to remember the dynamic person I used to be. Knowing that the delusion disorder was temporary as well as the treatment, I kept putting one foot in front of the other but it was and still is a challenge. I feel like I should win the Oscar for best actress. I have been acting happy but I really feel dead inside. This is an exhausting way of being. I did taper off and it has been 2 weeks since my last dose. The physical withdrawal symptoms have faded but I still feel emotionless and out of it. I have lost 2 pounds, gained 25 total on the drug. If anyone has been through this with... ...

Risperdal side effects
4 Replies RSS
Was forced to take risperdal Consta injections for 5 months after an adverse reaction to prednisone. I have lost my ability to feel joy, love and happiness. I also have cognitive and memory difficulties. Apathy, fatigue and social anxiety are still lingering, even though I have been off the drug for 6 months. Prior to this "treatment" I had never been suicidal, now I pray for God to take me in my sleep. I have read dozens of message boards with countless people suffering from the same side effects, has ANYONE recovered after taking this poison? ## Hi Tracey, I'm very sorry to hear about the challenges you've been facing after taking Risperdal. This medication is actually regarded as a very potent antipsychotic. What I wonder the most is why your doctor would give you an ... ...

Clonidine and Risperdal
4 Replies RSS
My daughter is 7 years old and has been on Focalin 15 mg for almost a year, she has been taking it at 8 am and 2 pm and today the Doctor started a new schedule. She now has to take Focalin at 8 am and two new medications. She has to take Clonidine .1 mg either 1/4 or 1/2 at 4 pm and they said it will make her drowsy. The other medication is Risperdal 1mg but 1/2 a pill at night which also puts her to sleep. She has ADHD and severe Oppositional Difiant Disorder, do you believe that much medication is proper or do you recommend getting a second opinion? She is also having anxiety and depression symptoms do you believe that this mixture of medications could hurt her? Does anyone know any great psychiatrists in the Dallas/DFW area that they would recommend? ## Hello Juanita! I am 29 and suf... ...

Weight gain on risperdal
1 Reply RSS
I have recently started on Risperdal and I'm worried about weight gain as it makes me hungry all the time. I'd be interested to know from others whether you gained weight on this drug even though you ate normally or whether it was because you were hungry all the time? ## Hello, Jo! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Yes, Risperdal is well known to cause weight gain and appetite increase in some people that take it. My ex-husband was on it for awhile and it became a big problem for him, since he is also diabetic. Other side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, sedation and somnolence. However, if you are aware of the problem and control how much you eat, you may be able to avoid gaining a lot. Is anyone else taking this? ...

Please tell me if u take it what for your dose and how long for it to work please reply ## Hi Theresa, From what I can gather, Risperdal (Risperidone) is mainly used to treat the symptoms of schizophrenia, but is also prescribed for other types of behavior problems such as mania and aggression. As far as how long it takes to work, the manufacturer reports that it may take up to 2-3 months before you're able to feel the full benefits of taking Risperidone. So while that sounds to me like it would probably be a good time frame to assess how it's been affecting you, your doctor can also determine the duration of treatment you need based on the severity of your symptoms and condition. I hope this info helps! ...

Please let me know what you take it for how long it took to work please help ## Hello, Theresa! How are you? Risperdal is a very potent antipsychotic, so while it can take about 4 weeks to reach its full level of efficacy in the body, it will start to have some effect almost immediately, primarily due to its sedative like properties. Its most common side effects are related to that and may include dizziness, drowsiness, somnolence and weight changes. Learn more Risperdal details here.
