Earthcalling Posted October 1, 2009 Share Posted October 1, 2009 I have finally got myself a new doctor who is open to discussion for me trying new medication. She also doesn't treat me like an idiot - which is a change. Anyway I requested to go on Risperidone - I think its called Geddon in the USA - and at the moment I'm on a very low dose of 2mg. Compared to Zyprexa it's excellent! I don't wake up with the feeling of wanting to eat the kitchen sink and house. Though I do have the 'hangover' of leatheragy but this passes with a large coffee which I did on Z. Also on Z I had this heaviness which included the increase in weight but Risperidone doesn't have this. I feel calm and light. At the moment I have said to the doc if things get difficult I will take an extra dose - up to 3mg - and she said this was ok to start with. It's a case of new med and trying to figure out what is going to work. I know that it may appear to some people that I'm on very little meds but I have found I have a weird body chemistry - give me any dose of an AD and it doesn't affect. Give me an AP and I'm a complete zombie with medium to high dosages however I find low dosages extremely affective. Anyway will keep you posted on how it goes but loving it at the mo Hawk Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
