So... I got akathisia (icky, feeling uncomfortable in own skin, no fun) real bad and that parkinsonism from Risperdal when they gave it to me when I first became really sick. They prescribed me Cogentin at the time to help with the akathisia and parkinsonism, but even though the akathisia left, the shaking stayed.
The thing is, I stopped taking Risperdal 8 years ago and I still shake. It's just my right hand, but it's pretty bad sometimes and eating with a fork can be difficult, along with other things. I suspect it will be a permanent side effect... nobody told me it could be permanent... at least I didn't get the akathisia permanently... that would be horrid.
Has anyone else had this happen?
