Comment:
I was prescribed Risperdal(brand) back in 2007. I was also prescribed Paxil and Klonopin too, for anxiety. My disorganized, paranoid thoughts pretty much disappeared! OCD was way better too.

Prescribed for (self-diagnosed) depersonalization disorder, on first visit to therapist. Slows down thoughts, numbs the mind and emotions. Possibly caused lasting mental damage.
