About RISPERDAL CONSTA 50MG INJECTION

RISPERDAL CONSTA 50MG INJECTION belongs to a group of medicines called 'antipsychotics' used to treat schizophrenia and manic depression (or bipolar disorder). RISPERDAL CONSTA 50MG INJECTION also treats short-term treatment of long-term aggression in people with Alzheimer’s dementia, and mentally disabled children. Schizophrenia is a mental condition in which the person may feel, hear or see things that are not there, believe things that are not true, feel unusually suspicious or confused. Manic depression or bipolar disorder is a serious brain disorder in which a person experiences extreme mood swings (variance in thinking) and frequent mood and behaviours changes. 

RISPERDAL CONSTA 50MG INJECTION contains 'Risperidone' that works by blocking the effects of chemical messengers in the brain (i.e. dopamine and serotonin), thereby helps in improving mood, behaviour and thoughts.
