ABSTRACT A high-performance liquid chromatographic method has been developed for the simultaneous determination of risperidone and its major active metabolite 9-hydroxyrisperidone in plasma. Risperidone and 9-hydroxyrisperidone in plasma were extracted using a CN bonded-solid phase cartridge, followed by, C4 reversed-phase HPLC separation. Risperidone, 9-hydroxyrisperidone and trazodone as an internal standard were detected by ultraviolet absorbance at 280 nm. It was possible to determine risperidone in the concentration range of 1.0-100.0 ng/ml(-1) and 9-hydroxyrisperidone at a range of 2.0-200.0 ng/ml(-1). The detection limits of risperidone and 9-hydroxyrisperidone were 0.5 and 1.0 ng/ml(-1), respectively. The mean recoveries of risperidone and 9-hydroxyrisperidone added to plasma were less than 92.0 and 92.6%, with a coefficient of variation of less than 10.6 and 10.5%, respectively. This method has been used for the simultaneous determination of steady-state plasma concentration (Css) of risperidone and 9-hydroxyrisperidone in schizophrenic patients treated with 3-, 6-, and 12-mg risperidone oral doses per day.

    ABSTRACT: A carbon paste electrode (CPE) modified with multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) was proposed for determination of Risperidone (Risp). The method was based on adsorptive accumulation of the Risp on to paste electrode, followed by reduction of the accumulated species by voltammetric scan. The parameters influencing the peak current were optimized. Under the optimum conditions, the electrode established linear response over a wide range of Risp concentrations (0.04 to 10 mmol L À1), the detection limit was 0.012 mmol L À1 (after 150 s accumulation). The method was applied to the determination of Risp in a pharmaceutical preparation and in human serum samples, and satisfactory results were obtained.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this review is to provide information for interpreting outcome results from monitoring of antipsychotics in biological samples. A brief overview of the working mechanisms, pharmacological effects, drug interactions, and analytical methods of classical and atypical antipsychotics is given. Nineteen antipsychotics were selected based on their importance in the worldwide market as follows: amisulpride, aripiprazole, asenapine, bromperidol, clozapine, flupenthixol, haloperidol, iloperidone, lurasidone, olanzapine, paliperidone, perphenazine, pimozide, pipamperone, quetiapine, risperidone, sertindole, sulpiride, and zuclopenthixol. A straightforward relationship between administered dose, plasma or serum concentration, clinical outcome, or adverse effects is often lacking. Nowadays, focus lies on therapeutic drug monitoring and individualized therapy to find adequate treatment, to explain treatment failure or nonresponse, and to check patient compliance. However, extensive research in this field is still mandatory.
