Resque LS Tablet


Overview

Introduction

Resque LS Tablet is a combination medicine used in the treatment of schizophrenia. It works by modulating the action of certain chemical messengers in the brain that affect thoughts.

Resque LS Tablet is taken with or without food, preferably at night. However, it is advisable to take it at the same time each day as this helps to maintain consistent level of medicine in the body. Take this in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. If you miss a dose of this medicine, take it as soon as you remember. It is important not to stop this medicine suddenly without talking to doctor as it may worsen your symptoms.

Some common side effects of this medicine include insomnia, blurred vision, vomiting, headache, dry mouth, nausea and constipation. Initially, this medicine may cause a sudden drop in the blood pressure when you change positions, so it is better to rise slowly if you have been sitting or lying down. It also causes dizziness and sleepiness. So, do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus until you know how this medicine affects you. This medicine may increase your weight, but modifying your lifestyle by having a healthy diet and exercising regularly can reduce this side effect.

How Resque LS Tablet works

Risperidone is an atypical antipsychotic which works by balancing the levels of chemical messengers (dopamine and serotonin) to improve mood, thoughts, and behavior. Trihexyphenidyl/Benzhexol is an anticholinergic which works on the nervous system and corrects some of the chemical imbalances that cause Parkinson's disease and certain side effects occurring during antipsychotic treatment.
