I had strokes when I was 11 to 14. Could Risperdal have caused them?
I used to have sudden onsets of mini-stroke (most commonly called 'migraine', or a milder form of stroke but still causes vascospasm that can cause a full-blown stroke or interrupted blood flow in the brain and disability) since I was 12, after I had began taking a drug called Risperdal and Prozac together. They stopped abruptly when I was 14 (when I stopped taking the Risperdal). neurologists have confirmed that I have minor brain damage from the strokes and they stated that I was lucky, because cerebral vascospasm has a 20% mortality rate. My blood pressure is lower than before, being 110/50. I eat a lot of junk food and I am on the computer a lot of the time so I experience chronic headaches but no sign of an oncoming stroke which usually is blurred vision and flashing lights/slurred speech. I am very scared of experiencing the same thing again especially since it is life-threatening, I want to continue excersising. I have no fat around my arteries, it was checked. I just need to know if excersising could cause a person whose had several strokes before to have them again. I'm 19 years of age. I used to have epilepsy, also.
