Default Risperidone. how long does it take to work?

when can I expect any effect from a low dose antypsycotica for SA? I'll take Risperidone 1mg, 1 time daily. Use it for a week now. Didn't notice anything.

thnx.

Antipsychotics are capable to induce a permanent movement disorder with chronic use wich makes them a bad long term treatment for SA. That said you should have noticed benefits by now if it would work (wich i doubt since blocking D2 is the opposite of what would be good for SA imo).

I've read the movement disorder is NOT permanent. If you stop the Antipsychotic I've read that some peoples twitches stop after a year or two.

Yeah in some ppl, however in others it can be permanent, and after seeing what happened to my mum i know how terrible the movement disorder is, even only having that for a year seems like pure horror to me.

I know the risks of movement disorder. I read that this can happen if you use a higher dose (>4mg).

Risperidone (Risperdal) is known to also cause diabetes. I dont take it anymore because of too much weight gain.

I took it for maybe 3 weeks. It worked for me with the first dose (1 mg I think, it was awhile ago). It did nothing for SA. Mostly just made me tired and slowed my mind down. It was a really odd feeling for me, I am used to constant internal chatter, so I stopped taking it. I wouldn't recommend it for SA myself.
