Hi Vagen,

Could you describe exactly how your left arm was "wiggin out"? Was it very stiff, or moving uncontrollably? It is unlikely that you have TD at this point; however, EPS (extrapyramidal symptoms) are common in the initial phases of treatment. There are treatments available for EPS.

Your dose is less than a tenth the recommended dose for people with psychotic disorders. If you do not have such a disorder, it might be better for you to explore alternate treatment strategies, especially when you are already experiencing uncomfortable side effects. EPS increase as the dose of Risperdal increase; this is one of the problems associated with Risperdal. I think Zyprexa has a better track record with regards to EPS. It however comes with its own side effects.

I hope this helps.
