swordiebrom Posted May 28, 2019 Share Posted May 28, 2019 After 6 months tapering on 4mg risperidone and 1 month on 80mg lurasidone,I guess I am the minority that didn't suffer any withdrawal . However, the side effect of the medicine like weight gain and loss of emotions slowly got better after 2-5 months but I didn't lose all my weight from eating too much while on medicine Also lost my sexual urges while on meds and regain them after a month, ate a lot of broccoli,salmon,bananas and fish oil while I was recovering My case was kind of special because I had some illogical beliefs but did not suffer from ANY hallucination at all (both auditory and visual),these beliefs stemmed from me being paranoid and were gone after I had a logical discussion with my doctor and nurses so I decided to stop the medication with the doctors approvals And throughout my recovery,I didnt do much exercising,just eating balanced diets and playing computer games all day risperidone 5mg on 17 december 2017 4mg from 15/1/2018 3mg from 23/1/2018 2 mg from 27/3/2018 fluoxetine 20mg started 15/12/2017,stopped 15/1/2018 1/1/2019 80 mg lurasidone 2/1/2019 40 mg lurasidone 3/1/2019 stopped 29/5/2019 20 mg lurasidone 7/6/2019 10 mg lurasidone 27/6/2019 5 mg lurasidone 30/11/2019 2 mg lurasidone 30/12/2019 1.66 mg lurasidone Taking 40mg lurasidone and its helping a lot, don't stop your antipsychotic if you suffer from psychotic symptoms Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
