My husband has been on Risperdol shot for years. He had been doing so well for a year, back to his old self, laughing, happy, joyful. He thought he didn’t need his meds anymore and went to his psych and she said he could stop them. Stupid doctor. 1 month later after stopping them, now he is withdrawn, psychotic, talking to himself, and cold and unloving to me. I hate this illness. I am incredibly hurt. Now he won’t start his meds again. He never does when he’s psychotic. He thinks he’s fine. Jerk.
Anyway, thanks for listening,
