Brief Answer: Risperidone is not meant to be used for anxiety Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query. I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through. Risperidol is an anti psychotic drug and not meant to be used for anti anxiety as a first line. Some literature suggests that risperidol can be used to augment anti anxiety drugs. The common anti anxiety drugs are paroxetine, escitalopram, citalopram, fluoxetine, sertraline, propranolol, clonazeam etc... Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you. If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
