Hello, Billy! How are you and your friend?

I'm not an athlete, but I can tell you that Risperdal can cause some very problematic side effects, as listed by the FDA, such as severe somnolence and weight gain, so it can really slow the body down and make it harder to maintain stamina and good physical function.

Other side effects may possibly include drowsiness, sedation and dry mouth.

Is there anything else I can help with?
