Hi, I'm FunnyFace. Been on 37 psychotropic drugs plus combos thereof 20 years. I WD from Effexor in past year over 6 week to 3 month period (don't really remember). Been on risperidone 11 years for depression at various doses 0.25 to 2 mg. Quit 1 mg cold turkey 4 months ago. Six days later, developed uncontrollable and painful mouth and tongue movements. (Side effect called tardive dyskinesia, aka TD). Am eating inside of mouth...resumed drug 0.25 mg 1 week. Also have taken amantadine 1 month, then klonopin and vitamin E 2 months+, then Aricept, 1 week. (Prescribed by 2 diff Pdocs). Also have had memory problem known as losing words, and also halting speech, after WD from Effexor maybe??? If you have experience with face, tongue movement, I have problem.
