Indicated for the treatment of schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. These include first episode pyschoses, acute schizophrenic exacerbations, chronic schizophrenia and other psychotic conditions, in which positive symptoms (such as hallucinations, delusions, thought disturbances, hostility, suspiciousness), and/or negative symptoms (such as blunted effect, emotional and social withdrawal, poverty of speech) are prominent.
Risperidone also alleviates affective symptoms (such as depression, guilt feelings, anxiety) associated with schizophrenia. Risperidone also appears effective in maintaining the clinical improvement during continuation therapy in patients who have shown an initial response to treatment with this agent.
