Risperidone is an atypical antipsychotic medication.

By modulating the activity of these neurotransmitters, risperidone helps to regulate the communication between brain cells and improve symptoms of psychosis.

Risperidone is primarily used in the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It can help to manage symptoms such as hallucinations, delusions, and disorganized thinking. It may also be used off-label for other conditions, such as certain behavioral disturbances in individuals with autism spectrum disorder.
Forms of risperidone
Risperidone is available in different forms, including oral tablets, orally disintegrating tablets, and long-acting injection (Risperdal Consta). The choice of form will depend on the individual’s needs and the prescribing healthcare provider’s recommendations.
Dosage of risperidone
The dose of risperidone will vary depending on the specific condition being treated, the severity of symptoms, and the individual’s response to the medication. It is important to follow the dosage instructions provided by your healthcare provider. If you forget to take a dose, take the missed dose as soon as you can. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take your next dose at the usual time.
