There’s a new risperidone slow release weekly tablet coming out

You only need to take it once a week.
I wouldn’t mind taking it.

What?!? Is it out already?
This would be a game changer for me.

Can you post some info on it?

I looked it up, it’s in phase 2 trials right now.
Probably won’t be available anytime soon.

I’d rather take a weekly pills than have injection.

I’m interested too. Does it cause as bad of constipation as the daily risperidone pills? Does anyone know?

I don’t know @SkinnyMe
Maybe that information will be presented when it becomes approved.
If it becomes approved.

Are you on injection or tablet?

I’m on tablets but it would be nice to take once a week instead of everyday

It would be good for parties or for when being outside at night so we don’t forget taking the pill.

Thanks for the info, I would rather take risperidone than invega. Once a week doesn’t sound too bad. Where does it lodge itself for a whole week?

That’s what I was thinking.

I’m not on Risperidone, I am on Lurasidone, nonetheless a weekly tablet would be nice. I have to take mine twice a day.
