Hi, I have suffered deep depression together with manic highs and lows that have got me into trouble from the age of 16. A month ago I had my first ever visit to a psychiatrist who diagnosed explosive personality disorder, but she says she will call it Bipolar. Does this mean I am Bipolar then or what? She put me on Risperidone and I just cannot function on these things. Thumping headache ,weak muscles, sore throat, sleep even worse than it was before, anxiety, racing thoughts, tears, tantrums. Has anyone else had experience of Risperidone? I am due to see psychiatrist again tmrw.

Hi Frogpixie and :welcome:

I hope you find this forum as friendly and supportive as I have :)

I don't have the diagnosis of Bipolar or been on respiridone so feel unable to comment. However I do hope your appointment with the psychiatrist goes well.
