Change of med manufacturing company gives me low sex drive

I just don’t get it i am taking the same dose but from different manufacturing company and my sex drive became very low. 40% reduction… I start thinking that maybe the amount is not accurate. I put the 1mg risperdone next to 2mg and its exactly the same size the difference is in color.

I have had differences in drugs by different manufacturers. I asked my pharmacist to give me the old ones. Both of them they special order with little or no added cost to me.

I too have experienced this problem, American made drugs seem to work well uniformly but I’ve ordered pills from India and Pakistan and it gave me a different effect or didn’t work at all. I even tried using clozapine manufactured in Europe and that didn’t work either

Risperdal can increase prolactin and this can affect sex drive. Are your levels ok?

Yes my prolectine is high but this new med from different manufacturer worsens my libido, i am slowly going to reduce the dose or change it.
