In brief: Medication including

Risperidone is better tolerated over time as the body develops ability to deal with it.
Some individuals do not develop ability to tolerate certain medications in which case review with the prescriber is necessary to determine reason and possible alternative medication. Adjustments can be made to improve tolerability to some side effects (e.g., shift to bedtime if sedation occurs). Best regards.
