Should I go for Risperdal Consta

#1

Ten years ago I was on it for 6 months.Because of bad sleep,four hours a day,I discontinued treatment.Now I’m on 4mg until next appointment.I’m doing well on pills,just need them taken in different time,depending on how much I slept and when.Also,Consta gave me less side effects.I still take lowest dose of clozapine (25mg) for 6 hours of sleep.For example,now it’s 4am and still no sleep.Advice please.

Chat to your shrink. A good shrink will have an idea of what will work. It could be worth a try as it’s always about function vs side effects. Always look for the best function…worry about side effects later.
