hello,everybody. im verygrateful i found this site.it is so informative and helpful. can anyone give as many tips for coming of/tapering from risperidone?
I currently take 2mg of risperidone and i have seen my doctor and she has agreed to allow me to taper from the drug.
Any reccomendations in terms of diet,sleep and rest would be grateful especially in response to the withdrawal period. Im eating well and including good nutrition in my diet such as beans,meat fish, eggs and plenty of vegetables as well as plenty of complex carbohydrates.My diet is not restrictive. I also drink milk. I also now eat alot of good fats like coconut oil,omega 3. I eat a very nutritious diet and im aware that diet is very important.
I also know that sleep deprivation is something to be aware of and that i need to sleep well and sleep long enough. I also make sure i rest. i do yoga, aqua aerobics and pilates so i do activities that are helping my mind and well being.
My living situation is very good and i feel safe though i live on my own. i dont smoke,i dont drink any form of alcohol, and i dont drink fizzy drinks. i also dont drink tea or coffeee. I drink herbal teas.
Any useful information that offers more clarity and insight would be very beneficial as well as supportive. Thank you Celery
