Risperidone irreversibly binds to and inactivates the h5-HT7 serotonin receptor

and 5ht-7 seretonin is responsible for learning, sleep and memory , so does it mean that risperidone would harm your ability to learn even you just take them once?

Risperidone displays a novel mechanism of antagonism of the h5-HT7 receptor. Pretreatment of the cells with 5 or 20 nM risperidone, followed by removal of the drug from the media, renders the 5-HT7 receptors unresponsive to 10 microM 5-HT for at least 24 h.

I was on this med in the past and Iā€™m able to learn just fine. I often outpace my NT co-workers in courses we do together and have a reputation for learning things at a frightening rate at work. I think this is much ado about nothing.
