Risperdal

Risperdal, a benzisoxazole derivative, is an atypical antipsychotic drug with high affinity for 5-hydrotryptamine (5-HT) and dopamine D2 receptors. It is used primarily in the management of schizophrenia, inappropriate behavior in severe dementia and manic episodes associated with bipolar I disorder. Risperdal is effective for treating the positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia owing to its affinity for its “loose” binding affinity for dopamine D2 receptors and additional 5-HT antagonism compared to first generation antipsychotics, which are strong, non-specific dopamine D2 receptor antagonists.

Risperdal is an atypical antipsychotic medication. It is most often used to treat delusional psychosis (including schizophrenia), but risperdal is also used to treat some forms of bipolar disorder and psychotic depression. It also has shown some success in treating symptoms of Asperger’s Syndrome and autism. Risperdal is now the most commonly prescribed antipsychotic medication in the United States.

Symptoms of overdose include drowsiness, sedation, tachycardia, hypotension, and extrapyramidal symptoms. LD50=82.1mg/kg (orally in mice).
