Monitor your weight: There is no way to predict what exact dose will have a particular side, eg, weight gain, with Risperidal (risperidone). You may have no weight gain. Best to keep track of your weight. If you've gained 5+ lb and can't explain why, discuss with prescribing doctor. Dose may be adjusted or alternative med considered. Eating healthy and regular exercise are also important to control weight. I hope this helps.
