How long do the effects of risperidon last?
I discontinued risperidon two months ago. I have not had any psychotic symptoms. I believe my schizoaffective disorder is in remission. However can risperidon continue to have an effect two months after taking it? Anybody know? I took it for 4 years.

I took many drugs for 9 months. I have been off for 6 months and am still having issues. I feel like I have permanent brain damage. I have read that ppl can recover right away, take some time, or it might never get better. I should have never been put on the drugs, I was misdiagnosed.
