Iwant to ask can risperdal have negative side effects

Customer Question

Hello Iwant to ask can risperdal have negative side effects if it is not taken alongside an antidepressant.....also is it unadvised to drink alcohol while on this medication? I am 19 years old and feel that I no longer need this medication should I expect mental health improvements after coming off this. Another question I want to ask is is it possible to grow at 19 years of age and how can I truly find out if my growth plates are fused? Thank you
