> I'm concerned- simply because it takes years to gather the necessary statistics. They have been shown to cause TD and NMS, albeit to a lower percent than traditional neuroleptics. I guess my stance (and my pdoc's) is to use risperdal only when I am psychotic and only short-term. You should probably discuss your concerns with your dr. Best of luck- judy


First of all, I admire your aggressive and well-apportioned management of your disorder(s), most especially during your pregnancy. Wow. What a joyous thing to have happen.

It is somehow ironic that your recurrent psychoses can be treated episodically, and thus intermittantly with an antipsychotic, while it seems that a recurrent or chronic depression need be treated continuously with same.

I don't think I ever bother to tell you how much I admire, respect, and enjoy you, and I sure ain't gonna' start now.


Take care.
