Detailed Description:
A single dose two way crossover bioequivalence study in 40 normal healthy males and females was utilized to evaluate the pharmacokinetics and bioequivalence of Risperidone ODT (orally dissolving tablet) formulations. The test product was a 1 mg ODT tablet formulation of Risperidone manufactured by Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd.
