Risperidone half life

Common Questions and Answers about Risperidone half life


Avatar f tn At first I thought it was due to the ECT's, but it's been a year and a half, and I don't feel any better. I keep telling my psych doc, but he says I just need to get a job and that it's in my head. Have you ever heard of fatigue(physical, not mental) as a side affect of risperdal? Or lamictal, for that matter?
171791 tn?1358217981 This is what led her to prescribe me Risperidone. I sleep good now and still take xanex once a dy. I am feeling better and seem not to have such negative thoughts. ANy feedback would b appreciated.
Avatar n tn The half life of Risperidone is 20 hours, multiply by 5 would be when it is completely out of your system so 100 hours so basically in less than five days it would all be gone. This information is from my PDR. It makes no difference how long you have taken a drug in how long it stays in your system.
Avatar m tn the problem is that BP pts develop anxiety often, so unless you have anxiety, then you will be ok and will sleep well after the risperidone gets out of your body completely which is abt 3 weeks at most, since the half life is very short, matter of hours
Avatar f tn The half life of Risperidone is different for everyone depending on their metabolism but the typical half life is 3 hours unless it is the extended release. My brother just recently came off of it and he said that it took a few days for him to stop feeling the effects. When I was on it a couple of years ago and stopped it I didn't really notice a huge impact. In fact after about a week I felt better being off of it.
574118 tn?1305138884 the reason for 6 pills is the short half-life of seroquel.
Avatar n tn Those are both anti-Parkinson agents that are used to reverse EPS. The half-life of Risperidone is 20 hours. So approximately 1/2 of the administered dosage would be eliminated in a day. Without knowing the actual dosage given, it is impossible to give you an exacting time frame. If he was given the Risperdal Consta injection, the effects would persist beyond one month. This would seem highly unlikely. In my opinion, this toxidrome will resolve without incident in a week or less.
Avatar f tn //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Risperidone I guess I am kind of curious as to the difference that you see in him since you have restarted the risperidone. It is a very powerful medicine.
574118 tn?1305138884 A) reduce risperidone to half mg (it exists) to boost dopamine B) increase seroquel to 100 (Anonymous said below this dose doesn't have AD effect) Of course I can add an antidepressant and add more antipsychotics but this increases my drugs. he doesn't know.
Avatar m tn Could I take one 15 MG of abilify every other day which would work out to be 10 MG per day, over three days? I understand the half life of Abilify is 75 hours. It would make things so simple. It is difficult to cut these tiny pill in half. Also, I am finding that the Abilify has helped me considerably but both my doctor and I feel that I need a slightly higher dosage. I know this is a strange question, but does any one have any answers?
Avatar n tn I was VERY reluctant to use any medication...I had been prescribed Paxil about a month and a half ago and I had a horrible reaction to it. Made me unbearably dizzy. They took me off of it after 10 days but I remained dizzy for more than 2 weeks afterwards! I started the Prozac and that helped the dizziness...or maybe the Paxil just finally got out of my system. Anyway, I went on the Risperdal last Wed at .25 at bedtime for 2 days then the doc upped it to .
Avatar m tn thanks for reply i was taking risperidone. doctor told me to take 3 mg but i take half of 1 mg risperidone and 100 mg of seroquel.

During sex body used to tired fast, , unnecessary thoughts used to come, assumptions used to come. body used to tired a lot.
11119474 tn?1428705770 His notes also reflect that next visit he would prescribe this drug. What is risperidone? Risperidone is a antipsychotic medicine. It works by changing the effects of chemicals in the brain. Risperidone is used to treat schizophrenia and symptoms of bipolar disorder (manic depression). It is also used in autistic children to treat symptoms of irritability.
Avatar n tn I get so irritable and depressed a week or two before my cycle that life is totally unbearable. I'm a vegetarian and usually have a poor appetite from stress so I take a Multiple with Iron, Zinc 50mg, B-complex, B-12 100mcg, Vitamin-E 200iu, Biotin 1200mcg. Are these okay to take while on Zoloft? If so, should I take them in the afternoon if I take the Zoloft in the am?
Avatar n tn It's like my brain is stoned -- a feeling I haven't experienced since I quit smoking pot a year and a half ago. The psychiatrist at the program I attend thought it was major depression and wanted to prescribe Buspar, but I still remember effexor! Im a bit wary. On my second visit to the program psychiatrist I tried to elaborate more, which caused him to suggest .5 mg of Risperidone from a simple SSRI.
Avatar n tn Several controlled studies indicate low doses of antipsychotics like risperidone or olanzapine may help alleviate obsessive thoughts, body complaints, and dissociative experiences. Antidepressants, such as Serzone, may diminish impulsive and mood symptoms. Some individuals may respond to one antidepressant, and not another, so your doctor may discuss various treatment options with you. Psychotherapy can be useful to manage crises as well as the development of long term coping mechanisms.
Avatar n tn Dear BRUCE37, There are a few important things I feel I should mention here. In the first half of my comment, I would like to throw some light on the Tardive Dyskinesia (TD) issue raised here...! (By the way, I do not think you should worry about it in your case.) I know you have read a lot about TD already. (I read your comments in a separate post). Traditionally, TD is known to be caused by typical antypsychotic medicines, such as Chlordiazepoxide, Haloperidol and Trifluoperazine.
Avatar m tn I do understand that they are not life threatening. But my quality of life since they started has degraded quite a bit. I used to go out for walks in the summer almost every day. I would spend a lot of time outside of the home doing all sorts of things. Now I feel confined to the house due to this feeling of light headed/dizziness from having them. I've seen 2 cardio specialists that both have said they're pvcs and not to worry.
Avatar f tn You need to work out who Mary is, and what she desires, needs and expects from herself and from life. Life is way too short - go out and live it. Don't settle for less and be loved. Mary, give yourself a break. Be good to yourself.
574118 tn?1305138884 1mg risperidone, 1mg stelazin (typical AP) constant dose, but he criticized my dose of seroquel. I take 150mg, then after a few days i feel very lethargic and depressed a little and sleep a lot so i reduce it by 12.5mg (half a pill of 25mg) if i find that i am still sleepy i reduce it by another 12.5. Directly my mood is up and feel ok, but after a few days i have a beginning of mixed states, so I up my dose again by half a pill, etc..etc..
918275 tn?1254072352 Starting with one 150 mg epival in the morning and a half at night for a week or so then a half and a half - I see doc again next week to confirm sked and then we'll see if the 20 pounds starts coming off. I'm only 5'3" and 155 pounds is just nuts for me. I started at 135 (am quite muscular) and was quite comfortable with that.
574118 tn?1305138884 Adel I have read your comments for some time and I have a concern that you are trying to read too much into this and over analyse it. It doesnt matter if an episode is full, arrested or half baked - the reality is it happened and the path that I think you need to go down is why it happened rather than how many times its happened.
Avatar f tn Hi, so 1 year ago I had my first panic attack I'm 25 years old, I had it because I smoked every day weed for 1 year and a half til one day I had the panic attack.
Avatar m tn Hi people, My mums decline may have showed signs over the last three years since my dad died. Shes 72, but in this last month and a half she lost it. i see, that from now on she can no longer live on her own. Hallucinations at first, now regulated with Risperidone, psychiatrist thinks its dementia. She keeps her upkeeing as much as possible but unable to perform daily tasks. dressing, cooking, making coffee..cleaning, I help her in fact i do it. Im her only child. and im exhausted.
Avatar n tn Unlike Paxil, Prozac does not give immediate withdrawal symptoms because it has a longer half-life and so does not leave the body as suddenly as Paxil. The danger in this is that it might be tempting to disgard slow weaning off, thus suffering similar withdrawal symptoms at a later date. Extracts: http://www.rense.com/general29/ei.htm "What frightens me more than anything at this point of realization is millions of patients going into withdrawal from these drugs.
Avatar f tn In fact Lamictal is also known to sometimes correct the problem (I don't know how permanent that is but) I have been off any medication for almost one and a half years now (with my doctor's consent) I have been functioning pretty normally without it now. But I should admit it took therapy,support from family & friends and a lot of positive changes I had to make in my thinking/cognitive pattern and life style, to make this possible. Keeping my fingers crossed for the future.
574118 tn?1305138884 My cocktail is: risperidone 1mg seroquel 50mg stelazin 2mg xanax 0.375mg as you might have known i added to the above lexapro/cipralex 5mg as i was starting to be depressed again. I am OK now the depression went away supposidely yet I am SLEEPY all day long. The 1st time i started cipralex it was a month ago but nothing of the sort happened, it helped me tremendously but i had to cut it after 2 weeks as i had anxiety and slept one day a little.
Avatar n tn I don't think about it but always looking for an end to this feeling and have a 100% productive life as this has an impact on my work, career growth, attending meetings, memory, learning new stuff etc. I know this is not a life threatening issue but is nuisance and becomes issue thinking about it and has an impact.
1317621 tn?1293046337 You can certainly stop taking Prozac now if you do want to do that. Prozac has what is called a long half-life, which means that it takes a long time for the body to process and eliminate the drug. In fact, Prozac has such an incredibly long half-life that it can take many, many weeks to leave the system.
