I think I can relate.
I took Risperdal for 3 months and I have to admit it was the best medication ever. For the first time in my life I felt connected to the world.
You may benefit from Zyprexa or Risperdal-- just my opinion.
I had to stop it because of the side effects, milk leakage and irregular menses. The same problem I've had with Prozac and Paxil.
Anyway, if I don't ever find anything else that works, I will probably go back to Risperdal.
Good Luck and know that you are not alone!
