Name: Risperidone (Intramuscular Route, Subcutaneous Route)

Descriptions

Risperidone injection is used to treat the symptoms of psychotic (mental) disorders, such as schizophrenia. Risperdal Consta® may be used alone or together with other medicines (eg, lithium or valproate) to treat patients with bipolar disorder. This medicine should not be used to treat behavioral problems in older adults who have dementia.

This medicine is to be given only by or under the direct supervision of your doctor.

This product is available in the following dosage forms:

  • Powder for Suspension, Extended Release

Pediatric

Appropriate studies have not been performed on the relationship of age to the effects of risperidone injection in the pediatric population. Safety and efficacy have not been established.

Geriatric

Elderly patients may be especially sensitive to the effects of risperidone. This may increase the chance of having side effects during treatment. This medicine should not be used for behavioral problems in older adults with dementia. \

Appropriate studies performed to date have not demonstrated geriatric-specific problems that would limit the usefulness of risperidone injection in the elderly. However, elderly patients are more likely to have age-related liver, kidney, or heart problems, which may require caution and an adjustment in the dose for patients receiving risperidone injection.
