Risperdal 3 mg Tablets
Risperdal® (risperidone) is a prescription medication used for treating bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or irritability associated with autism. Your Risperdal dosage will depend on several factors, such as your age and weight, the condition being treated, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you are currently taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
For example, the recommended starting Risperdal dose for treating bipolar disorder in adults is a 2 mg or 3 mg Risperdal tablet once daily. Your healthcare provider may increase your dose up to a maximum of Risperdal 6 mg once daily if necessary.
Risperdal 3 mg comes in the form of tablets and orally disintegrating tablets (sold under the name Risperdal M-Tabs®). This medication is typically taken once or twice a day, and can be taken with or without food. Risperdal should be taken at the same time every day to maintain an even level of the medication in your blood.
