    I'm confused. First you say that your brother can't sleep because of the Risperdal, then you say he can. It's been awhile since you posted, so how is your brother doing now? If too much sleep or lack thereof continues to be a problem I would suggest that he see his pdoc.

    I take Risperdal (4mg tablets) and in my case, it made me tired for about a week. After 5 days, I no longer had any problems with feeling sleepy.
