Yes, Risperdal has been linked to tardive dyskinesia, a movement disorder that can cause uncontrolled movement of the arms and legs or the face, tongue, mouth, or jaws. The condition may continue after the medication is stopped.
Risperdal has also been linked to a rare but serious condition called Neuroleptic Malignant syndrome (NMS) which can cause fever, increased heartbeat, breathing problems, sweating, muscle stiffness, severe weakness and fatigue, seizures, and loss of bladder control. NMS has been found to occur even with low doses of the drug.
