It could be that the horrible hot flashes were a side effect of your previous med. I very successfully took Risperdal for years, but changed due to weight gain- over 60 pounds over time. I then tried Ziprasidone, which gave me horrible hot flashes, almost constant, as well as the shakes and anxiety. I'm now trying Latuda and although body temp issues are a potential problem, I'm hoping to avoid that. But if Risperdal is making you feel better, hurrah for you! Just watch your weight. I suggest picking a set number of calories a day, and stick to it. Risperdal is s wonderful drug. Good luck.
