Guide to taking Risperdal tablets

The orally disintegrating Risperdal tablet (Risperdal M-Tabs) should only be taken as precisely prescribed by a physician. In conjuncture with doctor directions, follow those on the prescription label—do not take more or less than the recommended dose.
In taking the tablet, open the blister package, peel back the foil, remove the tablet, and place it in the mouth. Do not swallow or chew the full tablet. Let it dissolve, with water if preferable. If you missed a dose and you have a while until your next scheduled dose, you can take the dose then. Do not take extra medicine to make up for the missed dose. If you overdose, seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222.
Risperdal has the chance to affect thinking or reaction time, so take extra caution before engaging in driving or anything that requires alertness. Avoid rising too fast to prevent dizziness. Try to move slower to prevent falling.
If you have been prescribed Risperdal for symptoms not pertaining to schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or, occasionally, autism and have faced life-altering side effects, contact an attorney with Williams Hart at (713) 352-7071.
