Do you know why she gave you the risperidone? Did she explain it? Usually antipsychotics are guessed it...psychotic disorders. Does she suspect some sort of severe OCD? It seems to me, without knowing what was said during your session, that your shrink is just trying to get you to calm down. Low-dose risperidone can do that.

As for the dopamine thing...if I remember correctly, your brain does adapt to antipsychotic D2 blockade by increasing receptor density or something. The downside is that if you withdraw quickly, you have problems, particularly if you were on a standard to high dose.

There's a condition--tardive psychosis--caused by neuroleptics. I don't think its been researched all that well, but the concept has been around since the 70s (I think). I'd be careful with your risperidone dosage.

Good luck.
