With me it is the complete opposite, it worsened my pseudohallucinations and gave me the wildest anxiety (a paradoxical reaction) you could ever possibly imagine, I was so sure I was going to do something horrible, was shaking in my bed uncontrollably, just the most intense anxiety you could ever imagine experiencing. That was up to 6mg daily. As for negative symptoms (though my psychiatrist keeps implying I can't call it "negative symptoms" with schizotypal pd. What the hell does it matter, the symptoms are the same in my case, affective, social, motivational, etc., etc.) I feel risperidone helped.
