Özet

Risperidone is a second-generation antipsychotic agent, widely used in psychiatric disorders like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and aggression. Edema has been reported as a side effect of risperidone in a few case reports in the literature. In most of these cases, another drug was combined with risperidone and edema was located in a specific zone. Here we aimed to report a case of generalized edema due to risperidone oral monotherapy and reviewed the relevant literature.
