Sizdon contains Risperidone
, the side effects of which include weight gain, anxiety, insomnia
, photo-sensitivity (patients are advised to use sunscreen while going out in sun)
But long term intake can cause Neurolept Malignant Syndrome(fever, muscle cramps
, unstable BP, altered mental status) and Tardive dyskinesia
(a movement disorder
Abrupt discontinuation of the medication causes acute withdrawal syndrome (which explains her violent behavior on missing the dose) & it is recommended that it should be gradually withdrawn instead of stopping it abruptly.
So...it will be better to continue the medicine & consult her Doctor to discuss about the further treatment plan.
Wishing a Good Health.
Thanks & take care.
