    From Riperidone to Olanzapine or Aripiprazole?

    I’m currently on 4mg Risperidone, 1500mg Semi-sodium Valproate and 50mg Sertraline and I’m experiencing what I’ve read others posting about the first one: namely, a loss of motivation and a depression that’s increased over time. It’s got to the point where I can’t do much and just sit around...

    Anyone on risperidone

    I've recently been diagnosed as schizoaffective and this medicine gives me headaches and foggy head. Does it ever go away??
  16. shaky


    I'm taking Risperidone again - and life has gone dull I'm not enjoying anything. I was rather unstable, very anxious, so I went on Risperidone again, but the lack of energy, not getting stuff done, and the lack of enjoyment is soul destroying.

    Risperidone stops you enjoying the things you love
