Does risperdal help with agitation due to mood disorder anxiety & depression & I'm overweight so I don't know about this I've been on everything
29 Jun 2012
Risprdal is an antipsychotic medication. It is an "atypical antipsychotic". It works by changing the effects of chemicals in the brain.
Risperdal is used to treat schizophrenia and symptoms of bipolar disorder (manic depression). It is also used in autistic children to treat symptoms of irritability. I'm currently taking Risperdal for bipoar disorder. I haven't experienced any side effects.
I hope this helps.
