I was receiving inpatient treatment for acute depression and anxiety in 2006. My doctor felt I should be on an anti-depressant combined with an anti-psychotic. Each anti-psychotic I was prescribed had negative side effects on me, risperdal being the worst. I was told to take it in the evening and did so. I woke up in the middle of the night feeling unable to breathe. I stood up and immediately fainted as I stood at the nurses station. Long story short they told me the risperdal causes orthostatic hypotension in some people and I couldn't take it anymore. I also refused to take any other antispsychotics after that point because of the side effects. If this is causing you extreme low blood pressure and fainting, you probably shouldn't be on it either, it can be extremely dangerous.
