My boyfriend was put on this medicine for anger

My boyfriend was just recently put on risperdal about 4 days ago.. they said it would help him with his anger problems..will this medication help him or does he need to quit using it and be switched to another one.?? ## Risperdal is an excellent drug for anger management, however, the benefits will not become apparent for several weeks. Psychotherapy always helps. ## Risperdal contains the active ingredient Risperidone, it is used to treat various mental health issues, and for its sedative like properties, so yes, it may help him a lot, with his anger issues. Ref: Risperdal Information The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, drowsiness, somnolence, and weight changes. Is he on any other medications? What dosage did they put him on?

Invega horrible drug

I was given two shots of invega sustenna, the 234mg loading dose and then the 154mg starting does and it as been the most horrible experience of my life. I curse the doctors who prescribed me this horrible drug. I wake up at least three times per night, I can't focus on anything. I also suffer from severe anedonia and restlessness and have trouble verbalizing my speech when I try and talk, that is the most frustrating thing that I have experienced. I have done some research and many of the people's comments I read said it would take anywhere from 6 months to a year to get the drug out of your system. I pray it is not that long. If anyone has successfully gotten off this drug sooner please email me {edited for privacy} I really need to hear a successful story of someone coming of...

Coming off Invega Sustenna

Hi, I was given Invega Sustenna at 100mg a month for 10 months since Dec 5th. My last shot was on August 29th 2013. The medication gave me severe anhedonia and I have lost the motivation and willpower to do anything. I can no longer experience joy, happiness, or pleasure from anything I do and I have no interest in doing anything. I constantly feel restless and uneasy and I just can't shake this feeling away no matter what. All of these started about a week after my first IV. I have been off this medication for almost 3 months now and I have yet to feel any improvements. I have read that it has a long half life of 25-49 days and that it can stay in your body for 300 days. So does that mean I will have to wait a year to start feeling better? Any info on someone who has been off this ...

Recovering from Invega

In April 2020 I was put on a community treatment order depot shot of Invega every 4 weeks for roughly 6 months after a month long episode/hospitalisation of drug induced psychosis. I suffered from EXTREME depression, anhedonia, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, inability to function or stand up for long periods of time. After roughly 6/7 months of being OFF the medication I am starting to return to my old self, feeling much more optimistic about life and find myself laughing again (still have the inability to fully cry) but it’s no where near as bad as it once was. This medication is toxic and I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone, but if you are someone who has been experiencing ill effects, just know that it IS possible to get better. I promised myself if I ever got out of the hell I w...

yellow round pill with 903 on it

I was wondering what kind of pill I found. It is a bright yellow, round pill, about the size of a dime, with a coating on it and an imprint of 903. ## I located a small round yellow pill with 904 on one side and blank on the back. Judging from the image I see, there appears to be a coating on it. I don't know if there's any chance you may have misread the imprint, but hopefully this helps narrow down the possibilities... At any rate, it's reportedly identified as a 100mg Quetiapine fumarate tablet, used for anxiety, bipolar disorder and other related conditions. For verification, the pill I'm describing is made by Sun Pharmaceutical and carries a National Drug Code of 47335-0904. Please post back if you have any further thoughts on this... ## What I s a yellow coated rou...
