My 15 year old son was put on Risperdal two years ago as a mood stabilizer, he had a horrible, violent hair-trigger temper punching holes in walls, throwing furniture, and wasn't even allowed to attend his regular middle school, he had to be taught off-campus due to constant explosions directed towards staff and students. Thank God for the Risperdal. He rarely even gets angry anymore, and I'm no l...

he shrink prescribed Risperdal 3mg a day then had me come off it. I had withdraw symptoms of fear and panic attack so I overdose and took 20 pills of 3mg then started hallucinating then attempted suicide by running in front of car but arrested by police. They did a procedure in hospital while pass out.

I took this medication when i was 13 yrs old. It and carbotrol they not only made me more suicidal they gave me homicidal tendencies, to where I would vividly imagine killing who or whatever was annoying me at the time. It got to the point where I didn't want to live anymore, I didn't want to hear or see those images. So i took both full scripts at once and I told my mom I was going to go walk around at the mall. I got onto the city bus which is less then a block away from my house and the next thing I can remember is the bus driver (who knew me well) told me that I needed to get off and get home. It was the last run of the night... Which means I had passed out on the bus ALL DAY! I don't know how or why I survived this experience, but I did and, as I walked home all I could do was cry. I still to this day have never taken either one again. Nor have I ever told my mom what happened that day.

was on lithium and Geodon, Seroquel worked but not well, doctor kept increasing despite increasing severely dangerous side effects, (rapidly increasing blood sugar, very rapid hypertriglyceridemia, and 12-14 hrs of sleep need. Geodon worked better than seriquil, but after 2 months I could not get more than 2 hours of sleep, and was so tired I cried all night. So my new doctor put me on Risperdal.(uh, hello work the same way) stupid me thought the doctor new best. In the mean time I was having mild sexual side effects that didn't bother me in the least, but I was having muscle weakness too. my doctor tested my testosterone and it was dropping. I then spent the next to years constantly increasing testosterone (which is very had to get and keep getting, but Viagra, that's super easy despite not a single symptom Viagra treats) sexual side effects became a huge problem but no American resource mentions a thing. I asked my doctor, and said problems started on lithium, and got worse with Risperdal and my testosterone was dropping like a rock. My "doctor" then told me it wasn't the drugs, increased BOTH, then proceeded to test each and every one of the hormones Risperdal effects. she said prolactin was high but nothing to worry about. The depression from not being able to preform was devastating, and if I had known this was the cause, I would probably not been. * years of Risperdal and lithium later, Risperdal became very unstable very quick. I got a new doctor, and he took me of both and prescribed Limital, and told me What Risperdal does. I spent two months in Hell, coming off these drugs and flooded with emotions. I did not notice how much of a zombie I'd been for 15 years because of medications. AFTER I got off Risperdal, every doctor tells me it is bad news

I have been lying down on my bed staring at the ceiling for six months. The positive part is that I do not have those strange hallucinatory thoughts anymore so I will give this medication a 10/10 for effectiveness; however, it makes me extremely tired and for that I canâ??t stand it. I am in a permanent sedentary position because the side effects outweigh the positives and that is disturbing! I canâ??t work or study due to the uncomfortable feeling it gives me.
