Question about atypical antipsychotics


CPK3

Recommended Posts

My question is: How much time (in an average estimation) do synaptic receptors (5-HT/dopamine) need to recover from atypical antipsychotics, such as risperidone or aripiprazole, at the standard dosage after a short amount of time taking them (let's say, 2-3 months)?

 

If anyone has information about this subject, please do share. Thanks.

I just discussed this with my doctor and she said anytime you lower risperidone by any amount you can expect a 90 day leveling out period. I don't know if that's what you are looking for or not.
