It is a dopamine antagonist possessing antiserotonergic, antiadrenergic and antihistaminergic properties.
Side effects of risperidone might include significant weight gain and metabolic problems such as diabetes mellitus, as well as tardive dyskinesia and neuroleptic malignant syndrome. Risperidone and other antipsychotics also increase the risk of death in patients with dementia.
