Uses

Risperidone (Risperidone) belongs to a group of medicines known as atypical antipsychotics. It is used to treat social withdrawal, emotional problems, a lack of interest in life, hallucinations, hostile behaviour and other symptoms of schizophrenia. Other uses include treating episodes of mania in patients with bipolar disorder, and treating irritability and aggression in certain people with autism.

Risperidone (Risperidone) operates by blocking certain receptors in the brain, which in turn prevents excessive dopamine activity, and this may lead to an improvement in symptoms in patients affected by the conditions listed above.

Dosage and Administration

Always use Risperidone (Risperidone) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated. Adult patients undergoing treatment for schizophrenia are often told to start treatment with a dose of 1mg, taken twice per day. The dosage may be increased by the prescribing doctor on the second day of treatment, and after that, adjustments may take place (at the discretion of your doctor) every week. Never take more than the amount your doctor prescribes to you.
