Doctor just put my son on it, he is on Adderall in the morning for adhd. She did it for his temper issues, I have read so many bad things about it and don't know if I should give it to him. Has anyone been really hurt from taking it, and has anyone died? I read it can cause NMS which is fatal syndrome. But he is 6 and now I don't know what to do I am scared to give it to him but I want my good baby back.
Hello amanda918. I'd not be too worried. Risperidone has been used in the treatment for Autism and ADHD and with a lot of success. I am going to include several organizations along with how they can be reached. You might contact them and ask thier thoughts to your question. Autism Society of America : 1-800-328-8476 Autism Research Institute (ARI) :1-866-366-3361 National Institue of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, contact BRAIN :1-800-352-9424. Good health and wishes to you,pledge
My wife was put on Risperidone for pshycosis. It calmed her down. Trouble was, they left her on it for too long. She started to display the classic symptoms of Dementia. Forgetfullness, memory loss,wandering off, she lost the value of money.She would offer £2 for £80 worth of goods,she lost interest in hygiene,she would`nt wash or clean her teeth.I could go on and on.I read that Risperidone could have harmfull effects so I asked her psychiatrist if he would consider changing her drug. He put her on Depakote as she was also showing signs of Mania.He said she might be Bipolar.The immediate effect was nothing short of amazing. A miracle we said. She came back from the long lingering journey to death from Dementia and rejoined us as if she had never been away.Thankfully, it appears that being on Risperidone for 8 years did not damage her irrepairably. She is now as good as new. I rely on her to be my memory now.
I take 30mg of Adderall a day along with 10 mg of selegiline. I break them up in morning and lunch. No jump in blood pressure. I feel great, no adhd anymore. I still had symptoms of adhd even with Adderall, but not when selegiline was added. No one that I can tell has died from it. I think most of the people that bad mouth selegiline are drug reps from competing drug companies who know that selegiline kicks their ass as far as being an antidepressant.
