Has anyone noticed a significant decline in their child’s behavior after being prescribed Risperdone? Our child was recently prescribed this by his doctor in a small does of .5mg two times a day. We built up the dosage over a couple weeks. We have seen progress at home (where he is mainly one on one with his parents) We are a divorced family. His behavior at school has declined significantly. He is aggressive toward other students and teachers whenever one of his triggers is set off. We have tried several medications, but have yet to find something that works well. His behavior is by far the worset since starting risperidone.

Does anyone have any thoughts of have had any issued with this medicine?
