I'm tapering off Risperdal. Have been doing this for 9 months now. Down to .5mgs. No w/d symptoms until last taper 12 days ago. Had a few, nothing major, things like brain waves, a few zaps, feeling hot off and on and a some nausea. Last 2 days felt great. I tapered 5% off my last dose. Will taper again in 2-3 months, again 5%. Will taper very very slowly and gradually. Even if this takes a year or more that's ok with me. Hope I continue to feel good. I'll post if not but doing this very slowly is the way to go to minimize w/d symptoms.

Wondering what to expect after my last cut. Will protracted w/d set in or will I be ok as I've done this very very slowly over a long time?

Hi and :welcome: to the forum.

Don't have any experience of the medication you mention, hope all goes well.
I think the important thing too is to keep in contact with your Dr about any changes.

I wish you well and hope the forum proves helpful to you.

I'm currently tapering off Risperdal too. I am on the injection though.

Hopefully you will be okay as you've been tapering off so slowly. Good luck with stopping it.
