Risperidone (Risperdal) Kills Libido!

I can't say for everyone but it certainly did kill mine...
It lowers testosterone levels.
I had my hormones tested and results showed that my testosterone level is less then a minimum level for 70 year old males...
I almost lost all desire for opposite sex... I can't get an erection... sexual dysfunction... no satisfaction
Am I the only one ?

I remember taking risperdal for three years. it gave me a huge appetite and did also induce some sexual dysfunction. I take another antipsychotic Prolixin and helps with racing thoughts.

Can you describe sexual dysfunction that it gave you ?

Risperdone has a ridiculous amount of weird (a.k.a. dangerous) side effects. I can't find any evidence on Google, but my psychiatrist told me about a lawsuit involving men whose breasts were growing as a result of taking it. No joke.

Glad I was smart enough to tell my old psychiatrist to die in a fire when she tried to put me on this stuff.

For what reason are you taking this stuff?

Im not worried about the sexual desire being deminished - it's the laziness and lack of motivation that Im worried about - does it feel like a mamoth EFFORT to get your **** together in the mornings? I don't know if its just me or the sa or the depression but i struggle to make appointments in the mornings and usually miss them. But at night Im wide awake until 12am.

I used risperdal but I felt no side effect. no sexual dysfunction.
I have delayed ejaculation with Paxil though.

I have a question: Is their anything remotely positive about this crappy drug?
Sexual dysfunction, weight gain, sleep problems, blurry vision, risk of type 2 diabetes, tardive dyskinesia and migraines to name a few side effects :/

What are the positives?
you might feel a tiny bit calmer despite the horrendous side effects

I just took it for making me sleep sound the whole night without waking up at 3 am...
I began taking it in 2005, and it used to help... but now even these pills don't let me fall asleep within 1 hour after going to bed...
Last time I took it, I fell asleep after 4 hours after getting to bed...
My internal clock is totally screwed... I sleep during the day and can't sleep at night

Appetite stimulation for me, as well as its easier to sleep. Although I do appear mind****ed for a good portion of each day.

I've been taking .5mg of risperidone for about two weeks now and the only thing it does is make me a little tired. probably going to stop taking it if nothing changes soon.
