“Can't play sports any more on med. Can't think straight. Constantly tired. Don't even have enough drive to bathe myself. This drug suppresses me in all aspects. The schizophrenia isn't even that bad in comparison to this. It's torture being on this. One day society will see how bad we were mistreated .”

“I've been on this injection for nearly 3 years, at first it seemed like it wasn't working and after going off my medications once before I didn't find that there was much of a change but after 3 months or so I started sleeping at night peacefully without the constant confusion and voices in my head. I also had started doing a better job at work and was able to focus on doing simple tasks which then seemed impossible.”

“This medicine, although it has to be administered by IM every 2 weeks has been WONDERFUL. I've been on it almost 2 years now. My husband gives me my injections at home. I don't even think I have eexperienced any side effects. I am more focused and relaxed and not as flat.”

“I have been on Risperdal Costa for over two years now and find it to be a life saver. I feel like I have my life back in order and my mind back in order. The only side effects I have experienced are decreased sex drive and weight gain.”

“I believe after taking this, I stopping thinking well. I took it as an injection. It caused some sort of anxiety and made me think of my past. It cleared up some parts of thinking but after the Dr. prescribed this, I can't tell if it left permanent damage.”

“Risperdal Consta is pretty good. I've been on it for a year and two months and I think it's much better than Invega sustenna by far. Risperdal makes me calm, focused, and maybe even energized but in a very in control of myself way.”
