If tinnitus was caused by a medication/s then should it disappear when the medication stops (been more than 1 year)? -Risperidone, Cetalipram
Maybe: I know that's unsatisfying - but true. Most providers say it should go away or diminish greatly. But 'may' is not for sure. It also could be that there's other reasons for it too and they remain after side effects are gone. Be examined for the simple wax type causes and ask that provider for ideas. Psych (and other) meds have side effects. Only use w/ care. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tinnitus ...Read more

Im on Cymbalta 60mg Risperdal 0.25mg can Abilify (aripiprazole) 1mg add to my medication because Risperdal Abilify (aripiprazole) both good for me?
That question is: A good one for your doctor. Those types of medication changes are best made in partnership with a physician who knows you, and your medication history, very well. It would be presumptuous of me to give you advice in this context, but your doc will be happy to discuss this with you at your next visit. Best wishes to you! ...Read more

Not sure about the:
"Mylan" part but risperidone is a potent anti-psychotic which is also used to treat BI-POLAR disorders

In the meantime, I hope this helps!

Sounds inappropriate: Risperidone is an antipsychotic used for scjizophrenia and occasionally for bipolar disorder.It is often overused by providers for anxiety and depression for which it is not indicated.I suggest seeing a psychopharmacologist.Risperidone is a heavy drug and should not be used for anxiety and stress.Cognitive behavioral therapy, exercise, sleeping and meditation will do you more good without the risk ...Read more
I recently discovered I take three medications that metabolize by the same liver enzyme, paroxetine 20mg, wellbutrin300mg, risperidone .75mg for 3 yea?
Med interactions: Medications taken together can have interactions with each other, in part because of what you noted--being metabolized by the same liver enzyme. These interactions can have the results of making medications either stronger or weaker (depending on the specific interaction). I would base the evaluation on whether the medications are addressing the symptoms--if not, you should let your doctor know. ...Read more
I took risperidone,i started having breast pain(im a male) since then i stopped the medication but still have pain for a week now, when will itgo away?
Will taking 100mg on Zoloft (sertraline) cause me to gain weight? Will risperidone cause me to gain weight? Is it possible to not take medications with bipolar?
Both can: Bipolar disorder is a serious medical/psychiatric illness and needs to be treated. Consequences of poor treatment or no treatment are devastating; loss of brain cells, poor functioning in life, lower quality of life and rapid cycling of the disorder. Both zoloft (sertraline) and Risperdal you mentioned have weight as side effects more so with Risperdal than zoloft (sertraline). ...Read more

You already are on risperidone which interacts with fluoxetine and clonazepam, watch out for that, keep your follow up, ask your doctor about adjusting dosages or finding alternatives as per his/her clinical judgement, best wishes ...Read more

Natural remedies for bipolar affective disorder . Age 25 . Diagnosed 5 yrs back. Left medication after 3 months. Risperidone, pacitone, divalporex.
Not a good plan: Bipolar disorder can have very severe episodes of depression & mania. So far, there are no natural remedies which consistently prevent these without the person also being on a mood stabilizer at least. Even as a homeopathic physician I do not take my patients off of their mood stabilizers -- although with good treatment they may be able to taper down or even off of other pharmaceuticals. Sorry! ...Read more

Which is the best medication for really bad anxiety other than benzodiazapines? I am already on risperidone, celexa and depakote. I have also tried Buspar (buspirone) with no relief.
No single best: There is no single best medication- different things work for different people. However, i would advise not relying only on medication. Even bad anxiety can respond to counseling (like cognitive behavioral therapy), meditation, exercise, emotional freedom technique, homeopathy, supplements like magnesium, b complex, l-theanine & 5-htp & herbs like holy basil & ashwagandha. Consult a holistic doc! ...Read more
Several: Classes of drugs are used, but the most important is to stop or reduce the dose of the medication which is usually the cause, or to switch to another drug which is less likely to cause it.
