Post 4mg of Risperdal-what to expect?
During a recent visit to my fathers Doctor apt. we had one of his meds changed to a higher dosage.
My dad has been asking to go home allot more these last few weeks and asking for his mother that has passed away 12 years ago and seems to be dragging his feet allot more. He does these things dailey and over and over but it just seemed to get worse so that is why the dr. increased his dosage.
My mother and I are worried about what to expect with him on this higher dosage? Any responces would be of great help. Thanks..
Martyg. :shock:

We, personally, had a bad experience. As far as mood, it was wonderful. However, her body became weaker quickly, and worse, she didn't know where she was....horrible confusion...I ended up having her took off of it, ALTHOUGH the doctor says it was coincidental, ALTHOUGH these symptoms appeared the next day. Now she is on Zyprexa and was doing better, but has lost her memory AGAIN. No memory probs on Seroquel....just got meaner.
