Disorders of the pituitary gland can create lactation. Reason I know this is I had a small tumor on pituitary and first question the endocrinologist asked is if I have any lactation. I'd call my doc. Phillipa

lactation is actually a common side effect of risperdal. Risperdal increases prolactin levels. Call your doc if this side effect is not tolerable to you.

i would tell your doctor as soon as possible and tell him or her you want off the drug and try something else...risperdal f*ks with hormones and you may still have a chance to salvage your sex drive if you titrate off it early enough...
