Risdone is used to treat certain mental/mood disorders (such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, irritability associated with autistic disorder). This medication can help you to think clearly and take part in everyday life. Risdone belongs to a class of drugs called atypical antipsychotics. It works by helping to restore the balance of certain natural substances in the brain.
Take Risdone by mouth exactly as prescribed. This drug may be taken with or without food. During the first few days your doctor may gradually increase your dose to allow your body to adjust to the medication. The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Continue to take Risdone as directed, even if you are feeling better and thinking more clearly.
Do not take Risdone more often or increase your dose without consulting your doctor. Your condition will not improve any faster but the risk of serious side effects will be increased. Do not stop taking Risdone without your doctor's approval. Use Risdone regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Remember to use it at the same time(s) each day. Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
Side effects are: dizziness, drowsiness, fatigue, nausea, constipation, runny nose, increased appetite, weight gain, nervousness, acne, dry skin, difficulty concentrating, decreased sexual ability/desire or difficulty sleeping may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, contact your doctor or pharmacist promptly. To minimize dizziness and lightheadedness, get up slowly when rising from a seated or lying position.
Before taking Risdone, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Risdone may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems.
