Hello.....
Thanks for your query. Risperidone generally comes at dosage of 1mg/ml. This means 2 mg equals 2 ml which can be measured with a dropper. Take care not to mix with hot drinks or carbonated beverages. Compliance to medication is essential for effective symptom control. Wish her speedy recovery.
