The present study was performed to investigate the effect of risperidone on the pharmaco dynamic and pharmacokinetics of pioglitazone to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the combination. The blood samples were collected and analyzed for estimation of blood glucose levels by GOD/POD method as well as Pioglitazone was estimated for pharmacokinetic data. The risperidone alters the pharmacokinetics of pioglitazone and produces hypoglycaemic effect. Risperidone appears to produce interaction with pioglitazone by pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic mechanisms.
Keywords: risperidone, pharmacokinetics, pioglitazone.
