sizodon plus side effects / reaction after stopping
9 Replies RSS
My son has been taking sizodon plus for over 2 years. He now has a govt job and he intends to stop this medicine. Is it advisable to do so? ## Hi, Humnum! If he's been taking it for that long, then stopping it suddenly isn't advisable. Sizodon contains the active ingredient Risperidone, which is an atypical antipsychotic that's used to treat various mental health issues. However, a sudden withdrawal of it could cause serious rebound effects, that may result in mental health disturbances and major depression. Learn more Sizodon details here. Thus, if he wishes to stop taking it, he should consult his doctor and slowly taper the medication under their supervision. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am using sizodonplus from past two year because of some chemical chan...

Orange Pill, Round, R12 on one side Blank on the other side
4 Replies RSS
I can't find the name of this pill anywhere. It is supposed to be Risperdone 0.5 mg, but I just wanted to make sure. ## Hi Morgan, I located a round orange/beige colored tablet with R12 on one side and M on the other side, to be Risperidone 2 mg. Manufacturer: Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc. National Drug Code (NDC): 00378-3512 You didn't mention anything about an "M" being on the other side, but this is the only match I found that comes close enough to your description. The size of the pill is 8mm in diameter if that helps in any way. Does this sound like a possible match? ## I also have taken the unmarked R12 (no M) Risperidone, dispenses as 0.5 mg. I am so sedated I am going to have to get someone to drive me or pick up my prescription which I am having the doctor reissue ...

peach round pill r12 blank on other side
1 Reply RSS
I found it looking through a car I just bought from a car dealership. It's round, peach, and says R12 on one side and blank on the other. I googled the pill and the results that pop up are riseperdal for bipolar, etc. but those pill images have an M on the other side, the pill I have doesn't. Can anyone help identify it? ## Based on your findings and mine, I can only speculate that this may be a counterfeit of the real 2mg Risperidone tablet marked with M R12; being that the M on the other side is the only differentiating factor. A pill press could've very likely been used in its making...and whomever pressed it may very well have left the back side blank intentionally or by mistake... There's really no way to know for certain without sending it to a lab for an in-depth ...

Hi. After nearly a year of arguing with my psychiatrist and CPN about coming off risperidone Consta, I'm suddenly told they can't make me take it, so I'm coming off cold turkey. My weight is 19 stone and distributed mainly around my gut, which I've heard is what antiphyschotics do. My question is, how much weight am I likely to lose after withdrawel? Admittedly my diet is fatty and sugary so I'll have to address that but for the moment I'm just wondering how much weight I'm expected to lose (I'm on the highest dose) Thanks people ?? ## Hello, Tom! How are you? There is really no way to say with any certainty, because it will depend on how much was caused by the medication and how much is due to your diet and there's just no way to really know that. Th...
