In brief: Not sure about the

"Mylan" part but risperidone is a potent anti-psychotic which is also used to treat BI-POLAR disorders It is a drug which helps BALANCE the chemicals in the brain which are related to MOOD (AFFECT) and THOUGHT.
Discuss the long term effects with the Prescriber!!! It is clear you have to "have a talk"! In the meantime, I hope this helps! DrZ
