Risperidone mechanism of action mnemonic

Hello! This post is about the atypical antipsychotic - Risperidone!

Risperidone is a second-generation antipsychotic that has affinity for D2, 5-HT2A, alpha 1, alpha 2 and H1 receptors.

The mechanism of action of risperidone is not fully understood, current theories focus mainly on its ability to block D2 and 5-HT2A receptors.

Hard time remembering this? I've got a solution!


Risperidone mechanism of action mnemonic

"Risperidone won't let you rest."

Another mnemonic I use to remember that risperidone is associated with increased motor activity (associated with extrapyramidal side effects)

That's all!
