Wow! I'm sorry the meds didn't work out for you. My wife has been on Risperdol for several months now & had nothing but success with it. My son is also on it for his Autism, When we increased it back over the summer it made him very aggressive, so we cut the dosage back to where it was & he calmed down. Other then that no complaints about it here.
I think you need to go bak to the doc, just to make sure of things, maybe a cut in dosage or a different med might be in order, but you definatly shouldn't go without. I'm sorry your hubby isn't being very supportive about this, unfortunatly we spouces can be dismissive about things sometimes. All the more reason to go to the doc. I know how you wives like to prove us wrong! Lol! Really though go to the doc that way you will know either way if it's the meds or if you have something else going on, but from what I have read everything you have mentioned is a side effect of the medicine. Go to the doc.
P.S. BTW did I say go to the doc. LOL. Take care
Yes, I know all this. i am going to call and reschedule the appointment I stupidly cancelled, knowing I need to go. It is taking this risperdal so long to get out of my system. I will feel really good for a few days and then my body just aches and feels so bad. I hope a new PDoc and maybe a new prespective on my medication issues will get me going in the right direction. I can only hope. I am just so hurt by his comment, if I confront him with it and how it hurt me, we will just end up getting into an argument. I just do not understand. The fight in me is just not what it use to be. I feel so worn down mentally and physically, sometimes I just feel like giving up but I want so bad to be well, or should I say "well-er". I guess we all get this way from time to time and winter is a really hard time for me, being shut in the house or the office where I work. If it weren't for my kids I would be on the first bus out of here!
Thanks for the pep talk. I'm going, I'm going.................
Caren, thanks for the hugs. I need all I can get right now.
I feel better than I did this morning and not so alone in my fight to get and stay well. I hope they can figure me out medicine wise. I must be a real challanege and as far as my family goes, I have decided the less said the better. I am a big girl and I can seek help and make my own decisions as far as my health goes.
Have a good day sweetie,
