risperdalhater I recovered from risperdal aka risperidone

Recommended Posts

It is good to hear a successful story of recovering from Risperidone.  What about your sexual drive mainly erection issues and sleep?  Has it come back to normal or less than normal? I have tapered off successfully after taking Risperidone for 1year. It has been more than one month I am not able to see any improvement

One month is not very long.  Generally recovery happens gradually over time, and will probably take a lot longer than you would like it to take, but it is not something that can be hurried.  Your brain is trying to adjust to not getting the drug anymore.


Please create your drug signature (will show below every post) which will allow members to see your drug history at a glance.  Members like to be able to see what drugs a member has taken, how long they have taken it/them and how they stopped the drug/s.  This will be helpful because you have not created an Introduction topic yet.
