Brief Answer: You should take an ECG. Detailed Answer: Hello there, thanks for asking. You should take an ECG to know if you have long QT and hopefully not. The combination of some medications could be XXXXXXX and cause arrhythmia. Otherwise, the combination which you mentioned should work well. Many people may not be able to tolerate risperidone. Deanxit can work as an antidepressant as well. Best wishes.
