Additional Thoughts
I'm convinced that my psychiatrist is a quack and had no idea what she was doing when she prescribed me this med. The side-effects by far outwieghed the benefits. This drug in my opinion is poison and is by far over prescribed I think the FDA or government should intervene to prevent it from being prescribed accept to people who have severe schitzo.

Side Effects
This is about my cousin. He died of unrelated reasons, but functioned the best he ever did with the Risperdal and a very strong fresh made lemon balm tea before bedtime. He became more patient and friendly. He used to throw his cane at people and be cynical. He used to self medicate when very anxious with heroin. This allowed him to stay away from it, and have pleasure in simple home comforts.

Additional Thoughts
He had some involuntary leg swinging when seated.
