Lorazepam or Riderdal??

Posted by Bananafish on November 10, 2003, at 16:09:25

I have Bipolar I. Almost exactly 2 years ago, I stopped taking my meds because I decided I didn't really have Bipolar. Guess what happened? Of course you all know the answer...I felt fine for 2 years and then suddenly developed a pretty severe case of mania. Anyway I started lithium again today. But here's the question. The doc gave me the choice between lorazepam 0.5mg t.i.d. OR Risderdal 0.5mg t.i.d. to calm me until the lithium kicks in. I am very familiar with lorazepam, but have never taken Risperdal. Could someone with Risperdal and lorazepam experience advise me which helped them more with manic excitement? Thanks for any responses.
