Maybe: Resperidone is a very potent medication used for some forms of mental illness. In women who need it, it may need to be taken during pregnancy and they may be counseled to avoid breastfeeding. Bables born to mothers on respiradol may have some withdrawl symptoms at birth. Talk to your doctor before stopping respiradol, or if you are considering pregnancy and you take it.

Risperdal: Your prescribing doctor is the one to decide as he/she will discuss risks versus benefits of staying on the medication or coming off.

No: Do you mean misoprostol? Not safe if you are pregnant. This will lead to a potential miscarriage.

Uncertain: Most experts recommend against it in pregnacy as it can cause a decrease in uterine tone and colic in babies when nursing.
