Postby desperate788 » Wed Jul 24, 2019 6:16 pm

I may be wrong but I feel some improvement at my libido that can't reveal because of the drug I take risperdal I think of lowering the dose what say you?

Why are you asking strangers rather than the prescriber? That's what I think.

Because prescribes aren't aware what's really going on at my brain drugs may worsen the situation as I'm a genuine case

That's also true of everyone reading this thread, but your doctor knows your medical history and has seen you in person.

And that's precisely the reason longer-term members are mostly staying off your threads. It's well-established that no matter what anyone suggests, you "can't" do it.

You program yourself (and your life) with every thought you think, every sentence you type or say, and every gesture you make around other people.

I wrote several times...


Make that several thousands, on this forum alone.

I'm a poor sick guy


Neither your employers nor your doctors have written you off. You've done that.

not capable to achieve anything


You've achieved plenty. If you don't like it, you could do things differently. You prefer to complain all the time.

No one else can program you for anything.

Risperdal, like many psychotropics, will effect libido. That's very common, and you're not alone.


Unfortunately, your doctor usually will withhold that kind of information, as they do with many of the side effects that are attributed to these types of medications. Why, i'm not sure. I've gotten into the habit of reading all the scientific literature myself.

You need to leave him alone. I've noticed in posts, you seem to berate him and vent your frustration over what you preserve as him not trying or giving up. If that's how you feel, then move along. Your bio says you're a 63 years old, so you should know if you don't have anything nice to say, than just move along.

You don't know what's going on in this mans head, or his personal life. Your assumptions are not making his situation better, you need a lesson in civility and human decency.
