hi, i am a nurse, and i tend to work alot with patients
like your dad, risperadil is an antipsychotic drug, and
it does have its place when patients
become agressive and
pose a risk to themselves and
others, however its not intended to be used long term in patients
with your dads condition, we tend to use it, only in extreme circumstances and again only for
a very very limited period of time, ie maybe one to two days.
