Special Precautions
Risperidone is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to the product. Risperidone may induce orthostatic hypotension associated with dizziness, tachycardia, and in some patients syncope especially during the initial dose titration period, probably reflecting its alpha-adrenergic antagonistic properties. Risperidone should be used with caution in patients with known cardiovascular disease like myocardial infarction, ischaemia, heart-failure or conduction abnormalities, cerebrovascular diseases and conditions which would pre-dispose patients to hypotension like dehydration hypovolemea and treatment with anti-hypertensive medicine.
