So I'm taking 3mg of risperdal daily. The side effect of this is that this med although helpful for my other condition has ruined my motivation and has caused depression. I'm constantly feeling a lack of energy in the mornings and am depressed on some days. Anyone else have this side effect? Also it increases by anxiety sometimes. I self medicate for ADD with coffee. I've tried stimulants before and the dosage went too high before I felt my heart was racing so the doc has decided stimulants aren't a good idea. Any thoughts!?

Does Abilify (been on it before) have better or worse side effects for motivation/lack of energy/depression?
