HOW SIZODON WORKS

Risperidone is an anti-psychotic agent which helps to alleviate the symptoms of various mood disorders by affecting the levels of chemical messengers such as dopamine and serotonin. It also stops your symptoms from coming back. It works by inhibiting the activity of dopaminergic D2 and serotonergic 5-HT2A receptors, which leads to decrease in dopaminergic and serotonergic neurotransmission, and therefore decreasing positive symptoms of schizophrenia (such as delusions and hallucinations), mania or aggression and improves your mood, thoughts or behavior.
