> > I think I actually had a euphoric feeling from risperdal!

Hi. Much to my pdoc's disbelief I had a similar reaction to Promazine (English sedative, closely related to chlorpromazine) which would make itself apparent within hours of taking the drug.

My question to you, please, is how long was it before this 'euphoria' made itself apparent?

> > I took it for about 2.5 years. It took me longer than a week to get used to.

Do you mean b4 it started working?

> > I switched to seroquel about two mos. ago and don't like it as much and found it too sedating at 50mg. so I take 25 mg. Still, it's better than nothing. It'll do. My psychia. won't prescribe zyprexa for me because I'm already 50# overweight and he said everyone gains a lot of weight from it. Do you find that to be true for you?

Zyprexa, whilst quite tolerable, gave me a v. sweet tooth. I visibly piled the pounds on & don't normally have much of an appetite!
