Risperidone belongs to the group of medications known as antipsychotic agents. These medications are used to treat mental and emotional disorders such as Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Schizophrenia can cause symptoms such as hallucinations (e.g., hearing, seeing, or sensing things that are not there), delusions, unusual suspiciousness, and emotional withdrawal. People with this condition may also feel depressed, anxious, or tense. Bipolar disorder was previously referred to as manic depressive illness; it causes alternating episodes of mania and Depression. Risperidone is used for short-term treatment of manic symptoms.

Risperidone is also used for the short-term treatment of behavioural problems (such as verbal or physical aggression, suspiciousness, and agitation) for people with severe Alzheimer-type Dementia that has not responded to non-medication approaches and when there is a risk of harm to themselves or others.

Medications like risperidone are thought to work by correcting the function of nerve pathways in certain areas of the brain.
