Ref :-   Book : Martindale    Page : 1131   Edition : 37,


  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  The central effects of other CNS depressants, including alcohol, may be enhanced by risperidone. Risperidone may also enhance the effects of antihypertensives. There may be an increased risk of QT prolongation when risperidone is given with other drugs that are known to cause this effect. Risperidone may antagonise the actions of levodopa and other dopaminergics. Carbamazepine has been shown to decrease the antipsychotic fraction (risperidone plus 9-hydroxyrisperidone) of risperidone and a similar effect may be seen with other enzyme inducers. Fluoxetine may increase the plasma concentrations of the antipsychotic fraction by raising the concentration of risperidone. Dose adjustment of risperidone may be necessary in such situations. Increased mortality has been reported in elderly patients with dementia who are given risperidone and furosemide. Caution is advised when using risperidone with furosemide or other potent diuretics.,
