Schizzy here, I'm prescribed risp but I always go to the toilet and spit it out lol
I don't like it because it makes me hate waking up in the morning. I have to tear out of my dream like the perforations on toilet paper and it's really rough and scratchy feeling. It also makes me feel numb and stupid and totally "turned down". You know people call taking acid "turning on"? This stuff is "turning off".
If you are prescribed risperidone, see if you can get Paloperidone instead. I get 3-month depot doses and they turn me from a person who's always running off chasing cosmic visions to a person who cares about his fellow humans and wants to stay down to Earth so that I can be with them. I won't say I like all my cool visions and stuff going away, but I certainly appreciate being treated better by others and not put in hospital. The only side effects are frequent fidgeting and sort of a jerky walk like I'm a puppet. People have stopped me in the street to ask me if I'm high and I have had to say like "I wish! I'm actually on this medication that turns me down…"
But it's definitely better than the risperizzle zombie-drug>>150973
"Really powerful" depends on dose, as with many other drugs
