    I've been taking Risperdal for about two years. For about six months I took 4mg twice a day, now I take 3mg twice a day. The side effects I experience are lack of motivation, weight gain, slightly foggy memory and I have trouble keeping an erection and ejaculating.

    if someone has nformation about the emotional side of risperdal side effects i'd appreciate coming forward with them. i do not understand myself any more and they keep on changing the dose i feel like a yoyo in their hands.

    thanks everyone
