Others stroke caused by risperdal ?

I had a stroke caused by the medication risperdal. My dr. was very negligent in giving it to me.
She took me off the meds that were woking cold turkey which is a no-no as well. 1mg clonapin 3 times a day to none overnight. This alone is dangerous but to then prescibe me ridsperdal on top of that is attempted manslaughter. If I had the money I would sue them.

Has anyone else had a stroke due to risperdal?

It has been 6 months and I am recovering. Initially I could not walk, eat, shower, get in and out of chair or bed.
I was shaking and trembling all over. I was droooling. I couldn't sleep for months. I had very little hope for recovery and would have preferred death. While I am better, some new symptoms have arisen like the imbalanced stress feeling in my left eye and extremely sensitive ears, I can hear the slightest sounds radiate through the cartiledge of my ears and into my ear.

I wouldn't recommend anyone taking the drug risperdol. I thought it was the "miracle drug" for my 5 yr old son who was dx with autism. For 3 years his aggression worsen and he developed tics and gained a tremendous amount of weight which started raising his BP among other things. The dr. decided to wing him off and he ended up developing tardive dyskinsea. That will always be a haunting day I will never forget watching my son suffer from this with the chorea movements. His autism regressed so bad I had to teach him to feed himself again. 2yrs later he's back to where he was but now he can't take hardly any meds without the TD surfacing back. I'm so sorry your dealing with all of this. I know some will say risperdol helped there child but with my experience it was a total nightmare for our family. I hope things will get better for you just PLEASE be careful with any drug that may cause TD. Most Doctors will say it's more in the elderly who will develop this but my son was 7 years old. So, please be careful. Best wishes for you and I pray things will work out for you.

Hi

I am very sorry to hear that about your son. I hope everything works out for your son and family. But, I just wanted to ask you if there was anything you did against the Doctor who gave him Risperdal. My father had dementia and we put him in a nursing home. 6 months later he died. I was there everyday(twice a day) for him and I could see the difference in him after they increased the Risperdal. He must have suffered a stroke and the Doctor kept feeding him the Meds for app. 5 or 6 days until I finally told him something is wrong with him. 3 weeks later he was gone. He never recovered and he was a "strong" man. His only illness was dementia and to this day I believe the Risperdal killed him. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

My dad just suffered a stroke 7 days after starting risperidone. I could tell a big difference for the worse after the second day. It was so bad that I took him back to the drs office on the third day and she said to keep taking it. Four days later he suffered a major stroke 'aneurysm' and has been hospitalized since march 29, 2012.
