I was approved by my nurse practitioner to taper off risperidone. I’m going from 3 mg to 2.5 mg and I will be taking the latter dose for the next three months, then, depending on how things go, the plan is to taper down another .5 mg, take that reduced dose for three months, and so on and so forth until I’m completely off the stuff.
I’m nervous tbh. I think risperidone has helped me a lot, though it’s also hurt me in some ways; I guess that’s just the way it goes with meds this powerful.
I’m interested in learning of your guys’ experiences with/thoughts on doing this, pretty please lol. I understand this can be a controversial topic - I’m definitely open to learning of adverse opinions/experiences. I still don’t know if this is the right thing to do for me personally though I do have faith in my NP’s discernment. Thanks so much for reading.
