Risperdal/risperdone

How come my medication mentions “Generic Risperdal”. Does that mean I’ve been taking fake medicine? Or is it the best my insurance can offer?

Generic is just a cheap brand, should work the same way

I take 1 mg of risperidone… at night.

I take the generic of Abilify too. They work the same.

Will it be the same if I buy them OTC?

As far as I know it’s illegal to get these drugs without a prescription. By OTC , I assume you mean “over the counter”

It’s the best your insurance can offer and it’s the same as brand name Risperdal.
