IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION For RISPERDAL®

INDICATION

RISPERDAL® (risperidone) is used for the treatment of schizophrenia in adults and adolescents ages 13-17 years.

RISPERDAL® is used alone for the treatment of acute manic or mixed episodes associated with Bipolar I Disorder in adults and children and adolescents (ages 10-17 years). RISPERDAL® is also used in combination with lithium or valproate for the treatment of acute manic or mixed episodes associated with Bipolar I Disorder in adults.

RISPERDAL® is used for the treatment of irritability associated with autistic disorder in children and adolescents ages 5-17 years.

Elderly Patients with dementia-related psychosis treated with atypical antipsychotic drugs are at an increased risk of death. RISPERDAL® is not approved for the treatment of patients with dementia-related psychosis.

Do not receive RISPERDAL® if you are allergic to paliperidone, risperidone, or any of the ingredients in RISPERDAL®.

Cerebrovascular problems (stroke) that can lead to death have been reported in elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis.

Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (NMS) is a rare and potentially fatal side effect reported with RISPERDAL® and similar medicines. Call your doctor immediately if the person being treated develops symptoms such as high fever; stiff muscles; shaking; confusion; sweating; changes in pulse, heart rate, or blood pressure; or muscle pain and weakness. Treatment should be stopped if the person being treated has NMS.

Tardive Dyskinesia (TD) is a serious, sometimes permanent side effect reported with RISPERDAL® and similar medications. TD includes uncontrollable movements of the face, tongue, and other parts of the body. The risk of developing TD and the chance that it will become permanent is thought to increase with the length of therapy and the overall dose taken by the patient. This condition can develop after a brief period of therapy at low doses, although this is much less common. There is no known treatment for TD, but it may go away partially or completely if therapy is stopped.

Atypical antipsychotic drugs have been associated with metabolic changes that can increase cardiovascular/cerebrovascular risks. These changes may include:

High blood sugar and diabetes have been reported with RISPERDAL® and similar medicines. If you already have diabetes or have risk factors such as being overweight or a family history of diabetes, blood sugar testing should be done at the beginning and during the treatment. The complications of diabetes can be serious and even life-threatening. Call your doctor if you develop signs of high blood sugar or diabetes, such as being thirsty all the time, having to urinate or "pass urine" more often than usual, or feeling weak or hungry.

Changes in cholesterol and triglycerides have been noted in patients taking atypical antipsychotics. Check with your doctor while on treatment.

Weight gain has been reported in patients taking atypical antipsychotics. Monitor weight gain while on treatment. For adolescent patients (10-17 years of age) weight gain should be assessed against that expected with normal growth.

RISPERDAL® and similar medications can raise the blood levels of a hormone known as prolactin, causing a condition known as hyperprolactinemia. Blood levels of prolactin remain elevated with continued use. Some side effects seen with these medications include the absence of a menstrual period; breasts producing milk; the development of breasts by males; and problems with erection.

RISPERDAL® should be used cautiously in people with a seizure disorder, who have had seizures in the past, or who have conditions that increase their risk for seizures.

Some people taking RISPERDAL® may feel faint or lightheaded when they stand up or sit up too quickly. By standing up or sitting up slowly and following your healthcare professional’s dosing instructions, this side effect can be reduced or it may go away over time.

Patients (particularly the elderly) taking antipsychotics with certain health conditions or those on long-term therapy should be evaluated by their healthcare professional for the potential risk of falls.

Extrapyramidal Symptoms (EPS) are usually persistent movement disorders or muscle disturbances, such as restlessness, tremors, and muscle stiffness. If you observe any of these symptoms, talk to your healthcare professional.

Blood problems such as low numbers of white blood cells have been reported in patients taking RISPERDAL® and similar medications. In some cases it has been serious and life-threatening. Depending upon your medical condition, your doctor may choose to test your blood as you start therapy with RISPERDAL®.

Painful, long lasting erections have been reported with the use of RISPERDAL®. Call your doctor immediately if you think you are having this problem.

RISPERDAL® may make you more sensitive to heat. You may have trouble cooling off, or be more likely to become dehydrated, so take care when exercising or when doing things that make you warm.

RISPERDAL® may increase difficulty in swallowing that may cause food or liquid to get into your lungs.

RISPERDAL® may affect your alertness and motor skills; use caution until the effect of RISPERDAL® is known. RISPERDAL® may affect your driving ability; therefore, do not drive or operate machinery before talking to your healthcare professional.

Some medications interact with RISPERDAL®. Please inform your healthcare professional of any medications or supplements that you are taking. Avoid alcohol while taking RISPERDAL®.

Inform your healthcare professional if you are pregnant or if you are planning to get pregnant while taking RISPERDAL®. RISPERDAL® appears in breast milk and can cause serious side effects.

The most common side effects observed in clinical trials with RISPERDAL® were sleepiness, slow movements (including tremor [shaking], stiffness, and a shuffling walk), feeling of inner restlessness or needing to be constantly moving, twisting movements that you cannot control, dizziness, anxiety, blurred vision, nausea, vomiting, upper abdominal pain, stomach discomfort, indigestion, diarrhea, increased saliva, constipation, dry mouth, increased appetite, increased weight, fatigue, rash, nasal congestion, upper respiratory tract infection, infection of the nose and throat, and pain in the throat and upper windpipe.

This is not a complete list of all possible side effects. Ask your doctor or treatment team if you have any questions or want more information.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
