I don't understand your question but I am sympathetic to the position that that drug is over prescribed.

Risperdal is sometimes used to treat anxiety and depression (amongst other things).
Did you mean that your anxiety got worse after stopping opiates?  I think that that is to be expected.  I expect risperdal would help with the anxiety plus be non-addictive.

If you continue to have concerns you should take them to your doctor.
