Risperdal 0.25 mg Tablets
A healthcare provider may prescribe 0.25 mg Risperdal® (risperidone) tablets to treat conditions such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or irritability associated with autism. However, the actual dosage your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, such as your age and weight, the medical condition being treated, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you are currently taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
For children weighing less than 44 pounds, the recommended starting dose is Risperdal 0.25 mg once daily (or half of a 0.25 mg Risperdal tablet twice daily).
Risperdal 0.25 mg comes in the form of tablets and orally disintegrating tablets (only available in generic form and sold under the name Risperdal M-Tabs®).
