I was recently recently diagnosed with Bipolar disorder & my psychiatrist put me on Risperdone (0.5 mg BID). I tried it & I felt SO zonked out, like a zombie. All I wanted to do was sleep, I felt dizzy & I couldn't understand anything. I haven't took it since since I am a nurse & I need to think clearly to take care of my patients.
My questions, anyone out there suffering from Bipolar & what medication are you on?
If you are taking Risperdone did you feel this way & did the feeling go away?
