The Risperidone Side Effect

Good morning and happy Saturday y’all! As always, I hope that you are having a great morning, noon, evening or night depending on where you find yourself at this moment in time in this crazy planet of ours. Also, don’t forget to enjoy your day to the fullest and please, do not let nobody mess it up for you no matter what happens. Remember to say good morning, good night, please, thank you, hello and goodbye with a smile on your face… trust me it won’t kill you. Unless you say it to a serial killer!

First things first!… For those of my loyal two or three readers who might not know by now, Risperidone is an atypical antipsychotic drug that in my case, was prescribed to me, in order to keep my bipolar II disorder mood swings under control. The thing is, that even though I have been taking it once a day for a couple of weeks now and only at night, compared to before when I took it twice a day and I was falling asleep at work, right now I’m still waking up in the morning feeling drowsy. I’ve noticed that it stays in my system for around twelve hours or so. My problem is, that I can’t take it at 5:00 pm because I have things to do when I get home from work at around 5:15 pm… I can’t even do that on the weekends. Yesterday, the only solution that I came up with, was taking half a pill instead of an entire one. I guess I’ll just have to go with that plan for a couple of days and see how it goes with the drowsiness and my mood. Fingers crossed! Then I’ll let my shrink Dr. C know about it, when I see him again in our next session. I know that he will understand, because he always works with me with everything that I need.

With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!
