Paliperidone is prescribed to control psychotic symptoms of mental illness. It is most often prescribed for schizophrenia, although it can also be used to control manic symptoms in patients with bipolar disorder. This medication changes chemical activity in the brain in order to eliminate hallucinations, delusions, disorganized thinking and other symptoms of psychosis.

Side Effects/Warnings

Patients who suffer from age-related psychotic dementia should not take antipsychotic medications such as Paliperidone. These patients have a greater risk of dying of a heart attack or of pneumonia if they take antipsychotics.

This medication causes physical dependence. Do not stop taking the medication suddenly; doing so can cause seizures, high blood pressure and severe mood swings in addition to a resurgence of psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations and delusions.
