A patient suffering from chronic schizophrenia was treated with tablet risperidone 3mg/day. Patient developed convulsions during the treatment. Serum electrolytes showed severe hyponatremia. Since all other investigations were normal and there was no recurrence after discontinuing the drug, we attribute this episode of convulsions to hyponatremia induced by risperidone.
