I was b on abilify for the past 3 months and felt better then I ever have before! I was on the sample packets while I tried to figure out how I was going to pay for it, turns out my private insurance wont cover it and I can't find anyone else who will :( So my doc switched me to 1mg of Risperdal... and after having been on it for about a week and half now I can truly say my bipolar symptoms have come back ten fold. I actually forgot what it felt like to be "bipolar" and forgot about my symptoms now I remember, and I absolutely hate this feeling. My mom had to call the emergency number last night because I kept crying, I didn't know why, and I couldn't stop. I felt awful about my life and felt like a disgusting person. My doctor over the phone told me to up my dosage by 1/2. I'm worried that's not going to do anything and i'm really affraid of having another crying episode. Has anyone had any problems switching meds before? Is it normal to have symptoms until you're "used" to your new med or is this new med just not working at all. Any thoughts on Risperdal working/ not working for you?
