Risperidone scholarly article regarding its efficacy concerning, what is called
in schizophrenia, "Negative Symptoms" that I believe exist is Asperger's /
ASD.

Of course, ASD is not schizophrenia, and that is not what I am implying.

Just a source of reference I took the time to research and post this

My granddaughter has autism and anxiety. She took Risperidone for several years.

She was having a very tough time of it with the teachers at our school and that's the only thing that helped her through that time.

Unfortunately, it precipitated her diagnosis with type 2 diabetes.

I've taken dispersal and I don't recall it being especially helpful for negative symptoms, but those are not at all my main concern.

If you have negative symptoms as a main concern you should ask about clozaril. It's a b****, no joke, but shown effective for some for negative symptoms.

I have had success with sarcosine personally. But as I said negative symptoms are t my main problem/reason for taking antipsychotics.

Best wishes to you xx
