Based on the comparison of international and Russian studies, authors present a review on the epidemiology, clinical features, diagnosis and treatment of psychotic and behavioral disorders in patients with dementia. Results of the own study on the efficacy of risperidone (rispolux) in dosage 102 mg daily in patients with dementia with psychotic and behavioral disorders are presented. It has been shown that rispolux reduces psychotic and behavioral disorders, improves cognitive functions. It is well-tolerated and rather safe for elderly patients.
