So I'm on .25 MG of risperdal for anxiety/depression. I've been on it about a month and a half and it seems to be working well, but my hair has been coming out in clumps and I'm thinking of going off. Should I expect a bad withdrawal for such a small dose?
ckohlhaa; Yes you can you should talk with the doctor and wean off of the Risperdal while the doctor adds something else that does not make you loose your hair is what I would do. but after being on it for a month and a half it would not be good just to stop it. You need to taper it down over several weeks to a month depending on your response Or if the doctor well give you something else that well not give you the same problems. Good luck
