I hope that besides the Risperdal that you are also on an antidepressant...to help with the ups and the downs.
For me my combonation works really well. I am on Zoloft and Risperdal. I have only had to make one aadjustment and that was to increase my antidepressant. The impulses...especially with spending are pretty nonexistant. And more importantly it has calmed my mind down.
