View Full Version : Risperdal comedown ... UGH

11-28-12, 11:50 AM
I'm coming off risperidone after being on the drug on and off for about 2 months.

The comedown is terrible; my anxiety is through the rough, I;m having panic attacks, and my benzodiazepines, mood stabilisers, sedatives, and alcohol are not helping.

UGH :(

I'm so sorry Abi that you are having to go thru this. Hang in there.

Hey Abi,

Why are you off Risperdal if you don't mind me asking?

I can't imagine benzos not working, that's gotta be total h***, but have you talked to your doc? I hate knowing you are in such withdraw hun, hope you feel better soon and know we are here for you. :grouphug: :grouphug:

I'm glad now that I only took it for a couple of days! I never realized the comedown could be so bad.

I've done benzo withdrawal. This is WAY worse.

Not chemically addictive my a**.

I was never suicidal on benzo withdrawal.
