SOMEBODY HELP - D2 upregulation apathy

Posted by lostforwards on October 20, 2004, at 20:43:36

After taking Risperidal, for bipolar, and developing severe parkinsonian and eps, including difficulty breathing, muscle weakness, and td like movements in my fingers, that went away after discontinuing the drug - I feel incredibly apathic even 3 weeks later. Most of the td-like movements are gone. I still get little dystonic jerks sometimes. Is the apathy due to D2 receptor upregulation? Is it permanent?
I was only on the medication 4 weeks, the 1st week was 1mg, the next 2 were 2mg, and the last was 3mg.

Additionaly I was on a very low dose penothiazine to sleep.
