Hello Seca, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Risperidone is an antipsychotic drug that can be given to treat conditions such as schizophrenia or bipolar mania. Antipsychotic drugs often cause side effects, such as:
extrapyramidal symptoms (dystonia or involuntary muscle contractions, parkinsonism such as tremors, stiffness, and decreased movement, akathisia or a feeling of restlessness and movement) dizziness and headaches feeling tired and drowsy, nausea, vomiting, and other digestive disorders sleep etc. Trihexyphenilyl (maybe this is what you mean by Typenedyl) is an anticholinergic drug that can be given together with antipsychotic drugs to help overcome the side effects of extrapyramidal symptoms of antipsychotic drugs. Some of the side effects that can occur from using this drug include:
dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, constipation, visual disturbances, restlessness, dry mouth. Lorazepam is a benzodiazepine drug that is given to treat anxiety. Some of the side effects that can arise from this drug include:
dizziness and headaches drowsiness, impaired coordination of motion, visual disturbances, nausea and constipation
The symptoms experienced by your wife may be a side effect of the medications given, especially the antipsychotic drugs. These side effects are very common side effects. It is better if you plan to re-control your wife to the psychiatrist who treats her as soon as possible to make an adjustment in the dose of drugs or change the type of drug so that these side effects can be resolved. Do not stop, increase or decrease the dose of the drug on your own without consulting the psychiatrist who treats your wife first.
Schizophrenia is a chronic disease that requires long-term treatment. Therefore, treatment must be carried out regularly and continuously to prevent recurrence of this disease.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
