Quite a good choice, though your doc should have discussed with you the potential side-effects, and your chemist / pharmacist should have discussed this, too, as well as providing the legally required Package insert, which would list all such information. Similarly, you can google Risperidone ( the chemical name of the drug ) - and remember that by law and regulation, such documents need to list ALL possible side-efefcts and problems, not only any which might be likely.
Risperdal is not like ADS, needing a long lead period to produce benefits to kick in.
For instance, when my late mother used to grow unpleasantly confused or agitated, she would return to herself and calm within maybe 15-20 minutes of taking a tablet, even sooner when using the liquid preparation of the drug.
