It was suggested 8 years ago that I try Risperdol as a treatment for my bipolar because I had had some disordered thinking and mild psychosis mixed with two extreme highs that resulted in brief hallucinations and lots of wild mised episodes and rapid cycling. I resisted because it was an "anti-psychotic" and I refused to believe that I needed that. I took Depakote and Lithium instead, and so far it's worked better than anything else, because everything else (Lamictal, Abilify, and Seroquel) I seem to be highly sensitive to or outright allergic to. Once years ago my current doctor mentioned Risperdol, and I told her I didn't think it was necessary, but I have an appointment with her on Monday and I want to ask her about it now. Maybe there is something better than what I've been doing for 10 years. Anyone have any input?
