In reply to Risperdal, how does it work? what does it do?, posted by adamie on December 13, 2001, at 17:36:41

Hi adamie,

I've been on Risperdal (ranging from .50-1.00 mg per day)for almost 3 months now. I take it as an adjunct to my 20 mg. of daily Prozac. Risperdal is used as a mood stabilizer, not for depression.
What it does for me is even my moodiness out.
Being Bi-Polar II with irritablity, depression, OCD or ruminating helps with the majority of those symptoms. The Prozac helps with the depression and gives me an energy boost.
When I only take an AD, I still have the roller coaster moods and tend to become a bit manic so the Risperdal helps keep me a bit calmer.

This is the way Risperdal helps me :-)

Best Wishes,
