I am not sure but this tonight is my last dose. I will NEVER take this drug again. The side effects for me were more than I could take. Keep in mind that this is suppose to be a great drug but it just did not work for me.
Hi, crsh! Risperidone is not a brand name, it's the actual name of the chemical ingredient which acts primarily as a serotonin antagonist at the brain's receptor sites.
It was a great medication for me! No side effects at all, and it cleared my thoughts, stabilized my moods and made me less anxious and irritable very effectively.
Best wishes! WCV
