Resolved Question:

I am a Schizophrenia patient for 10 years, recently my psychiatrist lower my dosage of Risperidone from 2mg to 1.5mg, so I started to have my menstrual since Jan09. On Jan09 menses, my breast was swelling. But my February menses still yet to come, and I experienced some pre-menstrual cramp and headache and diarrhea, is this normal for patient taking Risperidone ?
