I was on it never the injection though, it helped stop my psychotic symptoms for the most part asides paranoia which remains, weight gain and sedation at higher doses were the only side effects I experienced. I ended switching to amisulpride to help with paranoia better.

In me risperdal caused very high prolactin levels which was not desirable so I had to stop it.
