Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. Given her age and fragile condition, I would highly recommend against trying to taper your mother off these medications on your own as she needs to be supervised by a psychiatrist for any taper or it will cause her significant harm if she experiences severe withdrawal symptoms. This website does not provide treatment suggestions in the manner of tapering of medications, so I would recommend that you seek a second in person opinion for her medications to determine if she is being over-medicated or not. Risperdal can cause confusion for the elderly and if the dose is too high, it can be physically harmful as well (cardiovascular issues). Ask for a second opinion from a geriatric psychiatrist as this may be more helpful for your mother's condition. Overall though, you cannot taper her off the medications on your own as only her psychiatrist (or another psychiatrist she will see for a second opinion) can do this.
You are most welcome. You can request a refund through customer service. I wish your mother all the best and I hope she can recover from this very soon.
