Default How does Risperdal make you feel?

I've been on 0.75 mg of Risperdal for 5 days now. I'm also taking 60 mg of Celexa as of 4 days ago. Previously I was taking 50 mg Celexa. I feel a bit dissociated from my environment. I'm pretty calm and OK. I'm experiencing a lack of motivation (which was present before, but no as severe. It feels like bad stuff can happen and I don't feel upset about it. I'm not worried about school, even though I should be.

Right now I feel a bit like my mind is in a fog.

I'm just wondering if these are side effects of Risperdal or if it is just me.

Default Re: How does Risperdal make you feel?

My, we've revisited this topic a number of times on this board, but here's my 2 cents again -- I've been on Risperdal 6 years. I have never had a side effect. It doesn't make me sleepy, it doesn't make me hyper, the only reason I know it's even working is because when I stop taking it, I'm suicidal in a flash.

That being said, everyone reacts differently to meds, and most people who have posted about Risperdal here have hated it. I like it a lot. Just me.

It was just me, not the Risperdal.

I guess I'm just a spacy person.
