Risperidol..... Feedback Please &Ty
I have never been a huge advocate of medicating, however my df (23) has lost complete control of himself, he destroys everything in our home with no remorse. He lost it so bad at the doctors last week they were almost forced to commit him (which of course is his worst fear) The doctors main concern is his temper and his lack of hygeine being as he hasn't been able to take a shower since thanksgiving :( The doctor made an agreement with him that if he would try the medication ( risperidol 0.5mg 2x a day ) that he would not have him committed to a psychiatric facility. He has only been on the risperidol for a few days, no adverse reactions so far....... If you have any experience with this med. good or bad, please share your stories with me.
