I am only taking 1/2 mg of Risperdal. Does it work right away, or does it talke some time like antidepressants? So far it has not helped me at all, although I have only been on this small amount for over a week. The noises are getting worse and the swelling in my head and over all aching of my face and head are not good either. As far as gaining weight, I have been tying to lose some weight and I have lost 22 pounds so far. I have really cut down on calorie count though too.
I am so glad you are doing better. :-)
