Is anyone an expert on Risperdal? I can't tell if it's helping or hurting. Thanks.

It’s so hard to deal with the weight gain and not get depressed over it. I take 2 mg dailynowI haven't gained weight yet, but I'm expecting to. It's been three weeks. My doctor said that if you take these drugs long enough, you get used to them, and may need higher doses? Does this make sense?
I really need to try something new I guess, I am just so scared of the psychosis coming back...... Thanks for helpingI have been on and off it over the last 10 years. I'm on invega and rexulti now much better. Can't say that i gained weight on it, but i was not joking about the constipation, really not a viable medication for me. Some sexual side effects too, which don't really matter when you're a sad git like me.
