Unsure : Hi Ellis, Actually I have never encountered a patient with a GI bleed from risperidone. There are a lot of medications that you can use for bipolar disorder but since you are sensitive to these Meds, you will need to work closely with your doctor to find one that works best without side effects. Sorry I could not be of more help.

Varies person 2 pers: Consult your psychiatrist and gastroenterologist. Zolof in my experience has the fewest side effects.
