I do find I feel more less emotional on Armour. But when I get my period it seems when something goes wrong I still get very emotional still.
thanks stella. I am really desperate right now. I guess I don't feel so bad just mentally can't seem to stay real stabile and don't know exactly what to do about it. linda
You may have come off the med too quickly. I understand that it is a strong med. Ask the doctor if you can restart it and taper slower to wean off.
The symptoms you are having may only be due to the withdrawel of Risperadal. Many psychiatric meds will do this.
More relaxed, this will be period time for me soon. My levels are still off so I am sure this one is going to be heavy
Kitty's right. Risperadol is a strong one and takes quite a while to wean off of. Hard to imagine prescribing it ONLY for thyroid disease. If you've been off of it for a while might do to just wait out the withdrawls now instead of starting them all over again.
I have gone back on it as I couldn't take it. the Lord told me to take the medications as they would keep me safe while He was healing me. I know it is a strong medication by he is only giving me a very small dose and it really helped me when I was very sick with the effects of the thyroid. He said he has had good success in thyroid patients with this medication and it worked for me. He said the doseage that he is giving me is so small it is a wonder it worked but it did. I came off of the medicine in 5 days and then had 6 good days and crashed. The symptoms where so bad and I tried to make it but just couldn't. I am just glad to be feeling better and the next time I will go off very gradually. I am trusting the Lord in this one. I found out by researching that the T3 is what put the chemicals in your brain and evidently my brain still isn't getting the right ones and this is helping to put them in. That is the way I am looking at it. Thanks for your input. linda
