Hi and hank you so much for this query.

Please, riscalm may not be available but there should certainly be other brands that contain risperidone. As the pharmacist for other substitutes and they would be able to tell you which other medications are available that do the same job. If this is not available for real, then talk to the prescribing doctors as he knows the patient best. There are many drugs in this class that can be used but we must make sure it is absolutely necessary and with the consent of your treating physician.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarification if need be. Thanks.
