the risperdal is 1mg in AM followed by 1 mg. in PM. Have been on risperdal for 8 years. I have chronic Lyme which produces inappropriate laughing. Also is neudexta a serotonin & dopamine antagonist like risperdal ? Thanks
Nuedexta is a combo med that is unique for your problem. Here is the info on it https://www.drugs.com/nuedexta.html Risperdal should have the dose reduced slowly, then stopped. Your pharmacist can tell you how to do the switch over to the neudexta from risperdal.
