I have had three separate doctors prescribe me risperidone. first in april 2010 it helped a bit then not much. then another in February 2011 and finally the last one was a real jerk put me on risperidone again in November 2011. this time the med didn’t help at all and I became manic and was hospitalized even then he refused to change my meds
That’s strange. Were you med compliant at the time? That’s the only thing I can think of. If you weren’t taking your meds they were just putting you back on them?
the first time I re prescribed it I was taken off fanapt and they put me on a very high dose of risperidone. the second time of re prescribing he lowered the dose from 8 mgs that the second doctor prescribed to just 2 mgs and that had a terrible effect on me.
