Will liver function be abnormal?
1 Mar 2011
Yes, Risperdal Consta can cause liver damage, but it's rare.
Hepatic side effects have included mild reversible elevations in liver function tests, including SGOT and SGPT. Hepatic failure, cholestatic hepatitis, cholecystitis, cholelithiasis, hepatitis, and hepatocellular damage have been reported rarely.
At least one case of rapid onset risperidone induced hepatotoxicity has been reported.
A 30-year-old patient experienced acute symptoms of cholestasis after 8 years of risperidone therapy. Once the drug was discontinued, the symptoms resolved completely. Eleven months later, quetiapine was introduced and the patient once again developed acute symptoms of cholestasis which later resolved after quetiapine discontinuation.
