Antipsychotics are usually effective in relieving symptoms of psychosis in the short term. The long-term use of antipsychotics is associated with adverse effects such as involuntary movement disorders, gynecomastia, impotence, w...

Vraylar side effects

Hi. I have started taking Vraylar 4.5 mgs daily as an antidepressant stimulator. I was wondering if anyone here has or is taking Vraylar for the same reason and if it worked or is working for you as an antidepressant stimulator? Any and what side effects have you experienced? Is it working for you? Did any of you experience urinary incontinence or urinary issues, sleepiness during the whole day? Your advice would help me out so much determining which medications are causing what side effects. Thank you in advance. ## The side effects of Vralyar as listed as possibly including nausea, indigestion, restlessness, weight gain, cough, and dry mouth. I don't see urinary incontinence listed, but it has been known to cause urinary tract infections. Can anyone that's been taking it chime...

Meds that are on backorder

I have been unable to get Clozapine (generic for Clozaril) since Feb. 2019 at my regular pharmacy alledgely due to "backorder". I don't believe "backorder" is the real reason. I live in NJ and I recently read that many of the generic drug houses are being investigated due to collusion. They are trying to drive up the prices of these meds and the way to do it is through collusion. I note that Adderall and other psychiatric meds are also on backorder. If this is true they should throw the book at these vulchers. ## I live in Essex County, NJ. As stated in my original report to you, NJ has cracked down on these drug firms who are/were in collusion with one another to drive up the prices on much-needed meds. Without naming any of them, one of the firms named in the indic...

Risperdal side effects and withdrawal

What are the side affects of Risperdal? My Dr has me on it for insomnia. He took me off Risperdal due to being drowsy during the day. Now I'm having withdrawal symptoms. Has anyone had similar reactions? ## im 14 im on risperdol too. it made me tired during school. i only take it at night now. i stopped taking it in the morning on my own and i feel fine ## There was one report on a national tv channel about a former mental patient taking risperdol, who had gotten worse, developed violent tendencies, and murdered someone - anyone else heard any bad effects of risperdol ## I am not sure how much of those types of actions should be attributed to the drug, it is an antipsychotic, so some people who are on it, are already unstable. Some of the most common side effects include: drowsiness...

I don't believe I have schizophrenia

My doctor keeps prescribing psychotic drugs to me and all they do is make me feel detached from reality and gain weight. I am on Risperidone .5 mg and the withdrawals are horrible. Can anyone help me? ## Wing yourself off these psychotic meds. They're bad news. Get on a good diet and get yourself some activated charcoal tablets from walmart and some niacin b-6 tablets, drink lots of water, start making yourself some healthy smoothies with spinach and fruit to help the brain mostly. Hemp seeds are good too for your omega 3/6/9. They carry this at walmart in the baking isle. ## Can I ask what issue's are you dealing with before taking the psychotics? ## Hello Ping Pong, If you feel that the medical attention that your provider is giving you is inadequate then I would suggest getti...

Misdiagnosed: Permanent side effects of Risperidone?

Hello forum members. I have a question about psychiatric medication which I was wrongly prescribed. Firstly, I suffer from Chronic Lyme Disease. For those who don't know it is a quite serious bacterial infection that causes profound physical fatigue, muscle pain, cognitive problems, and depression and derealization. However, as I have just learned recently, the physical and psychological aspects of the disease are completely due to the bacteria infection of the brain and body, and will disappear completely once treated with antibiotics, which I am now taking regularly. I was unfortunately only diagnosed properly 3 months ago, after having suffered 5 years of debilitating physical illness. Ok, so my problem is this: Before I was diagnosed, I was suffering the severe psychological eff...

Who is foolish enough to voluntary take Risperdal

I was forced 6 monthly injections of this. I am dying wih over 50 side effects from this med. It is torture and poison. I gained 100 lbs in 6 months and I only weighed 140 before. One year later Now I got diabetes and I am getting my foot amputated. I have been bed ridden since the second shot. From Lancaster, WI ## Hello, Shane! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems you've had. However, Risperdal is a beneficial medication for many people. It is classified by the FDA as a very potent antipsychotic and for some people, it is the only way they can get their conditions under control and lead a normal life. Weight gain is a well known side effect of it, along with somnolence, drowsiness, sedation and dry mouth. It can cause diabetes, but it's very rare, it occurs in le...

Best manufacturer of generic Seroquel?

I would like to know which manufacturer of Seroquel works the best? I have Accord and it doesn't work well. Thank you. ## I asked this question a few months ago, thought I would try again. Thank you. ## I was switched to the Accord health version and it's nothing like the one from Astra zenica. I'm wide awake and moody. I need to go back to the Astra zenica one- much better. ## It can really vary from person to person, so there's no way to say which one might be the best for any given person that tries it. Seroquel is used to treat various mental health disorders, as well as some severe cases of insomnia. It may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and somnolence. Have you found one that works better for you, yet?

Utah Medicaid - staying off the hit list [REXULTI / ABILIFY]

My prescriber wants me to take a very expensive psych med called Rexulti (~$1,100/mth), and tells me that Medicaid won't drop me for doing so. If you know Utah politics, they are still fighting ACA Medicaid Expansion and finding ways to reduce Medicaid programs such as PCN. I feel that if I take such an expensive medication, that puts a target on my back to be dropped at the first excuse. The state Medicaid office and pharmacies will not tell me how much each is paying, so I am left to guess if they have worked the price down, or if it's the bullet I think it is. As an alternative, I am thinking of taking its analog Abilify (aririprazole). But the problem is the same, they won't disclose pricing and Utah Medicaid refuses to pay outside Utah such as a Canadian pharmacy that s...
