Risperdal Agitation Causes and Reviews


Caring for someone who has Alzheimer's disease (AD) can be stressful and overwhelming. It's important to take care of yourself. Ask for and accept help.

Talk to the doctor. Find out what treatments might help control symptoms or address behavior problems. Find a support group. Others who have "been there" may be able to help and will understand.

If there are times of day that the person is less confused or more cooperative, take advantage of that in daily routines. Consider using adult day care or respite services. These offer a break with the peace of mind that the patient is being taken care of. Begin to plan for the future. This may include

  • Getting financial and legal documents in order
  • Looking into assisted living or nursing homes
  • Finding out what your health insurance and Medicare will cover

Risperdal Agitation Reviews

Tue, 05 Jun 2012

My 8 year old daughter has Type 1 diabetes and had ketosis as well after about 13 months on Risperdal, which was prescribed off label for her ADHD.  There is noone on either side of her family that has or had Type 1 Diabetes.

Thu, 06 Jan 2011
Is it ok to take Valerian with Risperadal (I take 1.5 mg a day)?
Wed, 12 May 2010
Went from 96 lbs to 170 lbs in a few short months. Haven't been able to lose any of the weight. I no longer have periods either. Haven't had one since 08. I'm writing this comment in May of 2010. Besides the schizophrenia, it was the worst thing to happen to me. It didn't even keep my paranoia, delusions or voices in check. I wasn't able to go back to a somewhat normal life until I switched drugs.
