Risperdal consta Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Risperidone, sold under the brand name Risperdal among others, is an atypical antipsychotic. It is used to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and irritability associated with autism. It is taken either by mouth or by injection into a muscle. The injectable version is long-acting and lasts for about two weeks.
In September 2019 on the portal DRUGS, a user by the name of "vandalized corpse" did a review of Risperdal Consta for his bipolar disorder:
"After a month of taking became very hallow and unbelievably slow, especially at tasks such as reading, thinking, and communicating. Periodically had some sort of dyskinesia and felt like all the memory was being sucked out of me and I would have to get stuck in a weird transition state. It was a very frightening and terrible experience as if I could not take care of myself. The only way to get rid of that catatonia was to take sedatives and sleep it off. I am not sure how to label this symptom, but I will guess the most appropriate labeling would be either catatonia or severe delirium with dyskinesia. The symptom disappeared after 6 months of not taking this medicine.”
