I ‘ve been off meds for about three months and i experience RLS

i quit 1mg of risperidone for three months just after two days of taking it but i now am experiencing RLs, i wonder why because i think taking Aps trigger it instead of quitting Aps will trigger it?

1mg is too small dose.
I was taking 15mg

What is RLs???

Restless Leg Syndrome.

Anything that produces dopamine can provide temporarily relief.

Yeah, there’s a chance.

It’s not. Before I was only taking 2mg of it and it treated me fine. 15mg is an overdose.

Risperidone caused tardive dyskinesia and I changed aps. Now I am better than ever. You?

Just becareful and I actually advise against it.How long are you on them?
I have been off meds at least 4 times,but got back on them.Stressor in life is normal,so I think you would still need the meds
