I just wanted to comment on a form of risperdal that is in my opinion convenient and superior to it's tablet form. I can say that getting an injection is painful but it's effectiveness isn't as side effect laden as it's tablet form.
It is approved only for schizophrenia and is a shot that is given every two weeks, it comes in 25, 37.5 and 50 mg doses that are delivered over the time. My experience with the tablet form of the drug was sleeping for a few days and a host of embarrassing sexual side effects (for men) and weight gain that was rapid even when reducing my calories to an ED-style 800 cal per day diet.
I guess it helps with my irresponsibility issue with pill form meds.
Soon I will further my convenience and try the Daytrana Patch for my ADHD (since one always feeds the other) and it's medication compliance: Convenience edition

Be careful of side effects on risperdal. If you keep taking it after side effects appear they can in some cases become permanent.
