Hello,

Risperidone does not cause nerve pain as a side effects based on evidence studies. So, in my opinion the nerve pain is not related to Risperidone. In my opinion, it can be a pinched nerve in the neck. I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms.

Hope my answer was helpful. If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
