Risperidone Has Caused Erectile Dysfuntion
I smoked a fair bit of weed, and am convincd it lead to me getting First Episode Psychosis. I went into a Psychiatric ward last year at around November. They put me on 4 mg of Risperidone and after 3 weeks I was out and back at home. I kept taking 4 mg for a few months and then they dropped down the dose to 3 mg and then 2 mg. After about 7 months I decided to stop taking Risperidone because of the side effects such as: I gained 30 kg's in 4-6 months and now sit at 120 kg's, I couldn't have an erection. It is now November nearly the 1 year aniversary and I have been off Risperidone for about 4 months and still cannot get an erection. I have read that the side-effects will go away after you stop taking Risperidone but that is not the case. Does anyone know what can be done about this?
