Risperdal Substitute

Risperdal® (risperidone) is a prescription medicine approved for the treatment of several conditions, including bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and irritability associated with autism. Although most people respond well to the medication, substitutes are available for those who do not see an improvement in their symptoms or develop any side effects. Alternatives to Risperdal include therapy and other medicines.
