Risperidone get you high

Common Questions and Answers about Risperidone get you high


1742269 tn?1315385233 Thank you all for your input. it was helpful. but has anyone who have taken it ever get headaches? especially when you take it at night and wake up in the morning.
2176476 tn?1338608899 I am currently taking Risperdal, Lamictal, Lithium, and Lexapro. I was on Seroquel XR for quite sometime, but switched back to Risperdal because 1) it is a heck of a lot cheaper, and 2) it really worked well for me, even better than Seroquel. I believe in the fact that medications work quite differently for everyone. I personally have not had any issues with my current combination.
4971738 tn?1390568984 I took risperidone (risperdal) off and on for many years. It helped calm down my irritation, anger and psychotic symptoms--hallucinations and delusions. I started on a small dose 1 mg then 2mg. I climbed to 6 mg until my prolactin level went way past 1000, and my gynecologist went up in arms about it because it completely stopped my menstruation. It got lowered to 4 mg.
Avatar m tn It's like adel_ezz said, a lot of antipsychotics can cause this and a lot of them are activating so psychiatrists advise you to take them after you wake up. I think I had this happen with Geodon where at first it sedated me like crazy and made it hard to move sometimes but then the last few weeks I was on it I was suffering from insomnia where I couldn't fall asleep and it also made me tired where I couldn't function at all from missing the sleep and this caused problems at work.
574118 tn?1305138884 of course risperidone helps you to sleep, but you said you are having severe trouble with it. If before you take it you slept well then your body will soon return to its original position. pdocs differ about antipsychotics. Some give it as a mood stabilizer, others abstain and give it only in case there are psychosis especially in BP1, but the majority of the cases like BP2 say they don't need it.
Avatar m tn It's not really off the charts. We often see numbers in the high hundreds, or even thousands. Just to give you some perspective, my TPOab on diagnosis was 900+, and my TGab was 3,000+.
Avatar f tn i recommended it because the person said they were still having sleeping issues so y is that pointless exactly? and it dosnt get you high, it relaxes you, yes i agree i should not post medication that helps, though i feel that if its something that helps maybe they can talk to there doctor about it, so not that big of a deal 10356....
713780 tn?1229728375 my concern is this last time his blood results came back with a level 60 of prolactin i have been very worried and concerned as to how this may affect him however his psychiatrist reassured me that it's ok his prolactin is high due to his RISPERIDONE intake and that within a year it will go back to normal i don't see how this is possible but he said not to worry. My question researching about high prolactin levels i see that it can affect his liver kidneys and more things can develop.
7522862 tn?1396949021 Many of the symptoms are exactly similar to dementia, which I know is impossible to get at my age unless you have brain damage, which is another supporting factor in the theory that I have brain damage. I'm going to a neurologist in a few months but I refuse to be like this and not try and figure out what it is, since all I can do is sit around I might as well anyways. I also want to add that substances such as MARIJUANA, ALCOHOL, and NICOTINE worsen all my symptoms.
Avatar f tn Bipolar is not triggered by trauma and it is not trigged by psychological injury - those are both outdated theories discredited years ago - the most likely cuplrit for bipolar is a genetic abnormality if you follow current thinking and its not something you can get, you are not sucspetible to bipolar if you are born with it you will develop it - they do not talk about it in terms of catching its talked about in terms of onset because it lies dormant until early teens and adulthood and no its n
1580318 tn?1492443745 So to give you a more solid understanding of the subject, here are six classes of prescription drugs you should definitely think twice about taking due to their inherent dangers:But this important information is often shrouded from public view, which intentionally perpetuates the myth that the benefits of FDA-approved drugs far outweigh any risks.
Avatar n tn And most of the time a combo of medication with a therapist is BEST! So you can get to the root of your problem. And have a little something to help you get through it. Don't be scared of medications either. I used to be... but right now, I'm so bad that any medication could only help me get better and not worse. haha. Sounds like you are on the right track!!! Keep us up to date!
603015 tn?1329866573 you should take MS in order not to get it again. Right now I am taking only AP risperidone (wth me for 6 years now) and seroquel which I started when manic. If you decide to take an MS then in my view and the lot of readings lamictal or abilify one is AC the other AP. Suit yourself, but they are the best and most recent.

1260240 tn?1336081048 The psychiatrist has now put Glen (16) ASD on prozac (20ml liquid) once a day alongside his 1mg twice a day risperidone (was on 2mg twice daily but had to cut it down due to Glen becoming constipated). Glen's anxiety is still sky high on the risperidone, been on it nearly 8 weeks so she thought she would try prozac as well. Do you think the prozac will help my son?

Avatar n tn I am writing for answers for my 15 Year old son with Autism. He has been on Risperdal for about 5 years now and was taking 4mg x 2 daily, HIGH, I KNOW. He is 5'10" 165 lbs. For about the past 6 months he has started with some new behaviors. I relayed these to his Psychiatrist and she has had no comment on them. I researched them myself and found they mimic Tardive dyskinesia in many ways. I have found a new Psychiatrist but can not get in to see her for approx 2 more weeks.
2216810 tn?1420860476 Any medication that changes the chemical constitution of your brain can make things worse before they get better. I think you should give it more time to work. I am familiar with risperidone. I didn't care for it myself, as it made me feel like I was on a morphine high all day. Stay with what your doc says, and let him know how you are feeling now. If you continue to feel like it's just not working, there are other meds that can be tried.
Avatar f tn So good luck to you and I hope if you are pregnant you have a healthy and happy pregnancy and a beautiful new baby.
Avatar f tn My question is, when you exercise are you completely out of breath? If I walk fast I get so out of breath I can't hardly do anything. I am on some beta blockers right now but I would like to get off the meds. Ive been on them for 4 months. This past month I tried to get off of them and started up with my PVC;s again. My heart is completely healthy. Any suggestions or ideas?
617037 tn?1292263823 What strikes me first is that your eye issue does not strike me as what is usual for pituitary tumors which is a loss of periphereal vision. What you describe is more like cataracts. You should get off the medication if you can as if you have a tumor as well, it would be aggravating it. The thing is, levels are misleading - they do not tell you if you have a tumor or not really. I had very low levels and had a tumor. I know others that have had much higher levels and did not.
Avatar n tn Hi. Wow, do you have a lot on your plate, and kudos to you for being so involved and on top of your son's care. I'm not a medical professional, just the parent of a kid with diabetes. To answer your question, yes, it is possible, and it is explicitly possible with Risperdal. From the FDA: http://www.fda.gov/medwatch/SAFETY/2004/risperdal.htm There is an increased risk. Please get the glucose tolerance tests and blood glucose tests done as soon as possible.
Avatar f tn i am 53 and still have a slight period about evry two months, my problem is my breast are very heavey, swollen, and quite painfull. i may have a good day once a month. if i lay down and get up the pain is awefull. when i take my bra off it is just as awefull. what could be wrong with the girls? not pregnant but is premenapausal.
Avatar f tn Hopefully the increased zoloft will kick in soon and the temazapam will help you sleep thru the night. Many of us know what you are going thru and how bad it can be. Yes it will get better and you will get thru this. Keep after your doc until you get relief. Will he prescribe you a tranquilizer to help with the panic attacks? Don't be afraid to ask. God bless.

561706 tn?1333950874 i am on seroquel 50mg and read so many times about cataract and diabetes of course i cannot preclude the relation however for diabetes all atypical AP's cause it others even faster and worse zyprexa is an example. I can't stand high dose of seroquel so i am mixing AP's like taking risperidone, etc... look any med you take will have side effects. Some pdocs don't recommend AP unless with psychosis, others use them only as an ms, no rules exist.
Avatar f tn I had some trouble with anxiety at times and for that when i get really bad I take a very small dose of risperidone. On high doses lithium robs you of some of your thinking abilities. You get forgetful. It's almost as though you got a blanket over your head so stimulous doesn't get through as quickly is it did. If he just started taking it, in my meds "research" if the meds didn't make me worse I'd stay on it for a month.
Avatar f tn A few other thoughts in that some of this may be related to the ADHD. In the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley, she says (p 72) that the rates of daytime wetting are 3X higher for boys and the rate of nighttime wetting is 5X higher. " It is not unusual to wet the bed until 10 to 12 years old." And bowel movements are also more prevalent in kids with ADHD. Part of the problem is that when off the medication, the self control is less.
518117 tn?1429279873 spent around every type of person you can think of. and yes, it will make you highly paranoid. you have always got to watch your back. what a way to live for so many years. they take your life, do nothing for you while in prison and then throw you out into the world. and todd losing my momma while in prison, well it was simply heartbreaking to him. he has no closure. my step-father kept my momma away from todd while in prison. my momma wanted to visit him. todd and momma were extra close.
Avatar f tn Two years ago I tried to get off an older medication, Navane, and to take the atypical medication, Geodon, which didn't work for me. I then went up on Navane to 14 mg. while taking 100 mg. of Geodon and stayed on this for a month--after which I got off Geodon entirely. That month of being on high doses of both medications is when my trouble with descending stairs (and balance in general) really deteriorated. Has anyone else had this problem? Do you have any solutions?
