ABOUT RISPERDAL

Risperdal (risperidone) is an antipsychotic medicine. It works by changing the effects of chemicals in the brain. Risperdal has also been linked to: Gynecomastia (Breast development in boys), movement disorders, heart problems, and diabetes.

PURPOSE OF THE DRUG

Risperdal is used to treat schizophrenia and symptoms of bipolar disorder (manic depression). Risperdal is also used in autistic children to treat symptoms of irritability.

WARNINGS

Unfortunately, what makes Risperdal work is also what can cause side effects. It works by altering the levels of dopamine and serotonin in the brain, but it can also cause a number of complications brought on by the abnormal levels of hormones in the body.

SIDE EFFECTS

Common side effects of Risperdal include akathisia, rhinitis, dystonia, dizziness, anxiety, drowsiness, agitation, constipation, nausea, extrapyramidal reaction, and weight gain. Other side effects include tachycardia, skin rash, sialorrhea, abdominal pain, and xeroderma.

Risperdal has also been linked to: Gynecomastia (Breast development in boys), movement disorders, heart problems, and diabetes.
