What Are Side Effects Of Arip?

my son,32 years old,hearing impaired,was taking 10mg aripMTfor past 6 months..He was alright but to clear an obsession risdone liquid was given.he developed stiff neck and other problems so bexol 2mg was added.My physician spoke to the psychatrist and risdone was stopped and arip increased to 15mg.this gave him stiff thigh muscles and urine problem so for two days the psychtrist stopped arip completely.Bexol 2mg continues and i am to restart arip 5mg now. My son looks and behaves better ever since he stopped taking these medicines.They were actually giving him anxiety and the anger increased.should i restart arip or just keep him off all medicines.

Hi,

It would depend on the underlying disorder. The increased muscle tone feels alarming and is generally not actually a serious condition and is easily treated. Anti-psychotics are quite helpful for a number of serious psychological conditions.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
