Risperdal Tablets

Risperdal® (risperidone) is a prescription medication used to treat bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or irritability associated with autism.
 
The drug comes in several forms, including tablets, orally disintegrating tablets (sold under the name Risperdal M-Tabs®), a liquid (Risperdal Oral Solution 1 mg per mL), and a long-acting injectable form (Risperdal Consta®).
 
The tablets and orally disintegrating tablets are available in several strengths, including:
 
  • Risperdal 0.25 mg (this strength is only available in generic form for the orally disintegrating tablets)
  • Risperdal 0.5 mg
  • Risperdal 1 mg
  • Risperdal 2 mg
  • Risperdal 3 mg
  • Risperdal 4 mg.
     
Although most people tolerate the tablets well, Risperdal is not suitable for everyone. Some of the common side effects include drowsiness, insomnia, and anxiety.
