Advice & Tips: MISDIAGNOSED WITH TOURETTE SYNDROME BY AN RXHAPPY DOCTOR. I absolutely abhorred this medication. I was not diagnosed with Schizophrenia or even in any psychiatric treatment at the time I was prescribed Risperdal, my doctor just liked to throw the most random as possible drugs at me. Risperdal left me awake for days, sleeping only for a few hours at a time when I did. I was such a zombie in class that my teachers called home multiple times to warn my Mom. It lessened my twitching (which isn't saying too terribly much) but also lessened my movement in general. I didn't think, didn't feel, didn't live. Hated this medication, should not be used for twitching disorders.
Cost: < $25 monthly
