Smile Anyone taking Risperdal ?

I am just curious if anyone had any side efects this medication may have caused, I had actually been on risperidone generic brand, I was taking 1 Mg & then up it to 4 Mg plus the 1 Mg , which would be 5 Mg total, I had been hopitalizied recently, I had too much confusion upon taking such a high dose, well while I was in the hospital, they had reduced it drasticly to 1 Mg, I am not sure but common sense tells me they should have tapered me off such a high Mg, am I right to believe this to be true? Also I had been having problems with voices now that the Mg had been reduced, Ugh, it can be so frustraing to say the least, any output would be appreicated. By the way today is my birthday, a glorious 58 years young...Happy to be in this group of so many caring & understanding people...

Thank you for any replies...
My best to all..
Stay Strong & Well

Re: Anyone taking Risperdal ?

To me, my doctors always cut doses down too fast for me. These doctors don't seem to understand what that does to your body. I think they need to try some of these drugs themselves, then they'd know how we feel sometimes! It would make sense that you could have problems with the voices because of the dose reduction. Maybe you need a different drug altogether.

Happy birthday, LovingMeOk! I hope you had a good day!!
