Sir: Risperidone is a benzisoxazole derivative antipsychotic
agent with serotonin 5-HT2 and dopamine D2 antagonistic properties.
During premarketing evaluation of this compound, diminished
sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, and orgasmic dysfunction
were noted in at least 5% of patients.1 In addition,
product information lists dysuria and other urinary difficulties
among risperidone’s adverse events.
