Risperdal licence extension

Risperdal tablets, solution and Quicklet tablets have two additional licensed indications.

They are now indicated in the short-term treatment of persistent aggression associated with moderate to severe Alzheimer's dementia unresponsive to non-pharmacological approaches and where there is a risk of harm to self or others.

They are also indicated in the short-term treatment of children with conduct disorder from the age of five years and adolescents with sub average intellectual functioning or mental retardation, diagnosed to DSM-IV criteria.

Treatment in children and adolescents should be by a specialist in child neurology and child and adolescent psychiatry.
