I could not take Respirdal as my heart rate went 140 beats per minute. It can be helpful in sleep in large doses but can also cause confusion. If you are taking it and having symptoms, please tell your Dr. right away......kahlia

Re: Risperdal

My boyfriend took this and it caused him to get Tachycardia and almost died. It is not a good drug for Doctor's to be giving out.

Re: Risperdal

i took risperidol for awhile, i never noticed any fast heartbeat. It did knock me out at night and also made me put on 60 pounds.
