Risperidone in the treatment of psychotic depression Academic Article uri icon


  • Risperidone has been primarily marketed for the treatment of schizophrenia. There are reports about its potential role for the treatment of affective illness. We report here another case of a patient with psychotic depression who was treated successfully with risperidone as monotherapy. This case report suggests that risperidone can be an efficient treatment mode for psychotic depression; however, it needs more data based on controlled study.
