Common Questions and Answers about Difference between risperdal and risperidone

risperdal

I have read about the serious side effects of lamictal and about possible drug interactions between lamictalan resirdone. What side effects should we expect and which ones pose a danger to our child?
Gave her the MCI diagnosis and in her conclusions says the difference between the 2 test was because of the risperdal. Doesn't this drug cause cognitive problems in the elderly?
( for some disorders it could mean the difference between life and death) there's very little value in seeking other members' opinions on this class of drugs. These drugs are usually taken orally, get absorbed in the blood then go through the liver, which recognizes them as foreign, so it modifies them to be passed out. It's important to understand that genetics play a huge role in this process.
Obviously, I know the difference between bipolar and ocd. But I notice during moodswings, mainly manic I have obsessive thoughts. Not always disturbing ones but they can difficult. And this must be true for some other people as well. I don't know if there is any overlap between the two disabilities but to some extent there must be as a person going on a spending spree may be a compulsive spender or they might be having a manic episode and binge spending.
this question is difficult to answer whether we can return to our original us again. also whether it will worsen with the years also is another more diffcult question. my point don't think of tomorrow and live day by day.
Hi adel I just wanted to mention that you should make another effort to taper Risperdal and Stelazin one by one and stop both and later bring Seroquel to theraputic level.You will definetely have plenty of anxiety while tapering both but you got to do it for your own good to prevent complications from combinations of 2 AP's and one typical combined .I encountered plenty of anxiety while tapering Risperidone but I did not give up and now am just 4 days away from stopping it.I am presently at 0.
I take seroquel 25mg right now along with stelazine 2mg and risperidone 1mg because I was dx OCD at first before an AD turned me manic thus classified BP (monkeyc objects here that I must have been BP all along). So I preferred to keep the 2 AP's along with the seroquel. Now 1. In many forums people tell me it's crazy to be on 3 AP's (monkeyc is one), yet my doctor says the doses are small so they work more as sedatives.
I did some more research and discovered that there can be a significant reaction between paxil (and to a lesser extent, wellburitin) and stimulant meds. When I mentioned the sleepy feeling you had sounded more like an overdose - that now makes sense. Here is a link to info on the interactions - http://www.corepsychblog.com/2006/11/adderall-prozac-and-paxil-problem-not-solution/ and its easy to google to find more info.
He is controlling and knows how to manipulate people of all ages to get his way. He is on 2 medications, strattera and risperidone, for his ADHD and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. Noone likes to medicate kids, but they are really helped because it calms them down, and in noway turns them into zombies or sleepy. The child is able to make friends and be more socially respectful of himself and others.
Everyone's experience is individual and unique... but I feel compelled to mention a couple of things.. 1) BiPolar Disease is exactly that... a disease. You can't "talk" yourself out of a disease. You can't "wish" it away, "faith" it away, or even "self-help" it away.
My psychiatrist gave up on me and just throw me some xanax sometimes risperdal but they don't work much. Oh, and every physical dr (GI, Hormonal, Traditional docs) gave up on me too.
Just re-read your post and I think I got a little confused between your post and someone else's on here. So I hope you won't take offense. But the part about us having things in common is still true, and actually it helped me today to read your story (not the other way around). I never had ECT though, but it was offered. Thanks and sorry for being confused.
At first the bites began sporadically in the evenings during dusk. They would bite my toes and between my fingers. As time passed the bites increased even during the day. A couple months later I awoke in the middle of the night with a swarm I couldnt see on my scalp and all over. The itch was excrutiating and when I scratched my head they got under my fingernails.
Remember "mdmystery" from the last PATM message board, who was cured after only drinking a small glass of red wine each night and doing a lemon/lime enema every 3 days? I was looking for a connection between the red wine and our problems. This is what I found: "Resveratrol and red wine extracts inhibit the growth of CagA+ strains of Helicobacter pylori in vitro." http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?artid=1489755 http://lib.bioinfo.pl/pmid:17230601 Hmmm...
