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 side effects
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
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... ...

risperdal Any users out there
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! ...
