Risdone 3 MG Description

Risdone 3 mg Tab is used for targeted symptomatic treatment of schizophrenia, manic episodes, and Alzheimer's dementia. Risdone Tab only helps manage the symptoms. Treatment for several weeks or more

may be required to start feeling the full benefit of the medication. The medication should be continued even if you start feeling better and should not be stopped without talking to your doctor. Suddenly stopping the medication may result in the return of the symptoms, which may become harder to manage after that. Risdone 3 mg Tab has been known to cause weight gain. It is essential to have regular follow-ups and regularly measure the weight as a significant increase in weight could lead to adverse effects on your health. Risdone Tab also has been known to commonly raise levels of a hormone called “prolactin”. This may result in infertility issues or menstrual disorders in women and may cause breast swelling in men. Regular doctor visits are important to keep a check on these issues.
