Risperdal Off Label Use Causes and Reviews


Normally, your cells grow and die in a controlled way. Cancer cells keep growing without control. Chemotherapy is drug therapy for cancer. It works by killing the cancer cells, stopping them from spreading, or slowing their growth. However, it can also harm healthy cells, which causes side effects.

You may have a lot of side effects, some, or none at all. It depends on the type and amount of chemotherapy you get and how your body reacts. Some common side effects are fatigue, nausea, vomiting, pain, and hair loss. There are ways to prevent or control some side effects. Talk with your health care provider about how to manage them. Healthy cells usually recover after chemotherapy is over, so most side effects gradually go away.

Your treatment plan will depend on the cancer type, the chemotherapy drugs used, the treatment goal, and how your body responds. Chemotherapy may be given alone or with other treatments. You may get treatment every day, every week, or every month. You may have breaks between treatments so that your body has a chance to build new healthy cells. You might take the drugs by mouth, in a shot, as a cream, or intravenously (by IV).

Risperdal Off Label Use 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.
