No, : No, Risperidone does not cause periods to stop. Please see your doctor and have a blood pregnancy test taken, which is more accurate. Hormone fluctuations and stress can affect menstruation, but you need to have a blood test to be sure.

Yes it can: Risperidone can cause Prolactin, a hormone we all have, to increase. If Prolactin increases to a certain level, periods can stop. This may or may not be a cause for concern. You need to discuss this with your Psychiatrist, who may want to check for pregnancy and for elevated Prolactin.
