    Talk to your psychiatrist so they can make adjustments to your dosage. You may want to tweak it or lower the dosage and see how you do. Those are really bad side effects, especially the lactating. You should visit the doctor to check your Prolactin l - 61% more...

    Probably not.. my husband has been on resperidone 11 yrs. for bi-polarness. our sex life ended at 1 mg. he now takes 4.5 mgs a day. without it, he has psychosis. its a good drug for mental illness, but its hard on the body and motivation.
