My son's psychiatrist wants to put him on risperdal for his defiant behaviors and moods. I am really leary of this medication since it is an antipyschotic drug. It scares me. He is on Adderall right now. The Adderall is helping his ADHD symptoms, but his ODD is not being very well controlled. Anyone have their child on this? Side effects? He wants to put him on 0.5 mg of risperdal at bedtime. I'm just really nervous about this since he does not have any mental disorders like bipolar or scizophrenia. Thanks.
