Drug Mode of Action ::  

Risperidone is an atypical antipsychotic. Its activity is mediated through a combination of dopamine (D2) and serotonin (5-HT2) receptor antagonism. It also exhibits affinity to adrenergic (?1 and ?2) and histamine (H1) receptors. It is less likely to cause extrapyramidal effects than conventional antipsychotics.

Drug Interactions ::

May antagonise the effects of levodopa and dopamine agonists. May increase serum levels of clozapine when used together. Increased serum levels of carbamazepine when used concurrently. Carbamazepine may also decrease the serum levels of risperidone. Increased risk of neuroleptic malignant syndrome when used with indinavir and ritonavir. Potentially Fatal: Risperidone may enhance the hypotensive effect of certain antihypertensives.
