Its an anti psychotic, it made me numb and forgetful and I didn;t like it at all - but we are all different.
I did even dafter things than usual whilst on it - but I think it did stop the voices for a while.

It's an anti-psychotic i was on it for a year and found it very helpful but can have side effects, for me it was feeling drowsy and sometimes feeling shaky, but it's different for everyone.

I've heard that it makes you sweat and gives headaches.

I was on this for a few days 2 years ago, I don't remember anything about those 2 days at all! It totally erased my memory and I was doing very odd things, my mum took me to hospital because I'd tried to kill myself. My eyes were like pin pricks and my breasts started to produce milk :| Will never do that again!!!!! EVER!!!

I was on it a couple of years ago too and it's supposed to cure you from those voices inside your head. But it never did work for me so I abandoned it and went on with my life cause' I knew the voices come from machines - which is called mind control.

But after these years of harassment I've become accustomed to it. :D

Risperidone.

I think risperidome is a prescription only medication. If there is anything else y ou want to know about either the medicine or yourself then ASK your doctor.
