Hello, and thanks for your question.

If you have been prescribed Risperidone, marijuana should absolutely NOT be used. Marijuana has negative effects on the brain including worsening of mood disorder, anxiety, and psychosis, all of which the Risperidone is trying very hard to treat. Marijuana will make the medication useless. Furthermore, side effects of combining these two things include dry mouth, panic, and confusion. Do not use marijuana at all -- stick with the Risperidone which will help you.
