Rispirone helps me, anyone else take it?!

Question: Rispirone helps me, anyone else take it.?
That is the question.Health Question & Answer

I took it for a month and just stopped two days ago because I couldn't bear it anymore.

At first it was really sedating and knocked me out for a good 8-10 hours without interruptions. I only slept for about 4 hours before so it was good. It made me vision really distorted, it felt like there was pressure in my left eye and stuff. Wasn't painful but made me vision odd. You'll be happy to know it stopped when I stopped taking it. I also had some sexual dysfunction I won't go into much details but having an orgasm was that pleasurable and sometimes I didn't ejaculate.

It stopped my racing thoughts and psychosis and also my anxiety a lot. One thing it did do was make me not be able to tell when I'm full, I'd just eat and eat and eat. I did however only gain like 4lbs in 4 weeks. When I first started week 1/2 I had little side-effects. But they just edged away at me until I decided I'd like to try something else.

I hope I haven't put you off, I've heard a lot of good experiences with Resperdal/Respiradone. It's all down to personal experience.Health Question & Answer

Took it for a month.Health Question & Answer

I took it for about a two years and a couple of months at various increasing doses. Eventually it stopped working and I just switched to abilify. Risperdal caused me to sleep for 12 to 16 hours a day, but back then since it was working I didn't mind. It also caused me to have poor sexual function and it caused me to gain over 40 pounds. So I guess it was okay when it was working.Health Question & Answer

i was allergic =[ it gave me a chronic headache and gave me a dead leg.
i wish i wasn't because it's the most used anti psychotic which would make me feel better about taking them.
i am on olanzapine now. x

(EDIT: although it did ease my anxieties after i had come off it, but then everything spiralled againHealth Question & Answer
