I am currently taking 1mg to sometimes 2mg doses of Risperdal/Risperidone. What are the withdrawal effects with my dosage? Is it true paranoia (hallucinations) and delusions would occur? Or just mild irritability/ticking/twitching?

NOTE: I am not trying to stop my medication. I am already getting ready for new medication. I just want to know so the withdrawal effects after being unmedicated for a week twice dont influence my results for being diagnosed with schizophrenia.

All of the above. The medicines that are supposted to give you relief from the symptoms can cause more of the same and deepen the psychosis. That's the catch 22. Sorry predicament... After years of switching and trying different medicines you begin to wonder... Sorry I couldn't be more upbeat but it's late and I've seen too much.

My son was on this. Be VERY careful with it. He actually went into a psychotic break for missing 2 doses. He suffers to this day, hallucinations, delusions, sees people and hears voices that no one else does. These voice on 2 occassion have talked him into attempting his life. He is no longer on it, owever still suffers the side effects, as well now suffers ticks. he is now taking Seroquil. MUCHHHH better results with it, the only bad part is the damage from the risperidone is done and will be there forever. If you can get off or change, slowly wean off to, i would talk to your doctor and do so if your side effects are not to severe yet. As they continue to get worse. I wish you luck
