From this study (3 months ago):
I started Risperdal 2mg and Cogentin 1mg 7 days ago. I noticed that my bell's palsy was more noticeable and there was swelling in my cheek. Also, the corner of my mouth was a bit droopier. I have had Bell's Palsy for 18 months. I have sharp shooting painful headaches and pain in my Bells Palsy affected side of my face.
