In reply to Re: EFFEXOR AND WHAT ITS DONE FOR ME, posted by Beta on April 27, 2004, at 7:07:56

I did a quick search for side effects for Risperidone; "Common side effects include insomnia (about 8% of patients), weight gain, agitation, anxiety and headache."

If it keeps making you feel sick, tell your doctor. I wonder why she would prescribe a drug that has anxiety as a side effect when anxiety is you main problem. She must have something else in mind.

> I also saw my doc yesterday, and suggested she up my dosage of Effexor XR because, although I have been feeling better, the anxiety is still unbearable at times. I am currently on 150mg. of Effexor. Instead, she requested I add 0.5mg. of Risperidone before bedtime.
> Last night I took my first dose of Risperidone, and shortly thereafter, felt terribly sick, and vomited violently 3 times. I will try to take it again tonite, as prescribed, but if I have the same results, I am definately not taking anymore.
> Does anyone have any experience combining Effexor and Risperidone?
> Thanks for your help.
