Seroquel VS Risperdal

topic posted Mon, March 26, 2007 - 4:42 PM by  friendly_jen
I'm on 100 mg of Seroquel daily in addition to lamictal and lithium. Only problem is the seroquel makes me groggy and it's hard to get up in the mornings, but I do like the fact that it actually helps me sleep. My doctor says that Risperdal may be less sedating while still offering the benifits of an anti-psychotic. What do you think?

    i love risperdal--in regard to my bipolar.
    it is the only thing i have ever taken that has made me gain weight, though (which says A LOT because i have the metabolism or a hummingbird and run almost every day), and it can lead to diabetes with long term use.
