windscar Posted February 6, 2011 Report Share Posted February 6, 2011 I was put back on klonopin, doing fine, but was suggested to see a new psychiatrist who works with drug addicts like myself, she has dealt with numerous people who suffer post LSD disorder, and said that she was going to take me off of klonopin(This freaked me out), instead she put me on a non addictive anti-psychotic called risperdal and it is not only more effective then klonopin, it actually balances out the chemicals and is not addictive; in addition she said that in most cases even as severe as mine, the subject can ween off of the risperdal after several years and have zero symptoms, without them ever returning. This is great news. I'm taking 2.5mg a day right now, slowly going up to 3mg. The side effects are at first *extremely* sedating, nasal inflamation and some anxiety, but it's worth it. This drug mutes the seratonin and dopamine neurotransmitters which helps dispel the overactive LSD symptoms. You can add this to the site. From this erowid report: http://www.erowid.org/experiences/exp.php?ID=21020 Just wondering, if Risperdal actually worsened the symptoms why would a doctor used to treat many HPPD'ers use it? Has anyone ever tried it? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
