Risperdal Sedation Causes and Reviews


If you are having surgery, your doctor will give you medicine called an anesthetic. Anesthetics reduce or prevent pain. There are three main types:

  • Local - numbs one small area of the body. You stay awake and alert.
  • Regional - blocks pain in an area of the body, such an arm or leg. A common type is epidural anesthesia, which is often used during childbirth.
  • General - makes you unconscious. You do not feel any pain, and you do not remember the procedure afterwards.

You may also get a mild sedative to relax you. You stay awake but may not remember the procedure afterwards. Sedation can be used with or without anesthesia.

The type of anesthesia or Sedation you get depends on many factors. They include the procedure you are having and your current health.


Risperdal Sedation 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.
