RisperdalRipserdal, the trade name for the anti-psychotic drug Risperidone, was approved for use in the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar disorders by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1993. It has also been recommended for certain “off-label” or unapproved uses, including psychosis, aggression and behavioral challenges in elder patients with dementia.
In 2015, the FDA notified Janssen-Cilag, Risperdal’s manufacturer, that it must include what is known as a “black-box warning” on Risperdal labels, recommending that the product not be used to for treat seniors with dementia.
Since its introduction into the American market, Risperdal has been linked to a wide range of side effects, from blurred vision, dizziness or drowsiness and headaches to lethargy, indigestion and weight gain. Other side effects tied to use of Risperdal include:

  • Blood clots
  • Chest pain or irregular heartbeat
  • Stroke or transient ischemic attack
  • A dramatic change in blood pressure
  • Abnormal liver function
  • Bowel obstructions
  • Atrial fibrillation
