I have been taking respidone for aprrox 4 months now dr changed me to abilfy but I am scared to make the change he sadI dont have to ween off of respidone is this true
If this helps, I was on Risperdal/Risperidone for about 6 months for anxiety (was trying a non-benzo approach) I switched to hydroxyzine/Vistaril with no taper-off period and had absolutely no ill effects... discontinuing Risperidone doesn't normally produce withdrawal symptoms, except for psychological ones.
