difficult child had recently gotten to the point where he was almost uncontrollable at times. He would go into fits of rage where he would bash his head against walls or slam his hand into doors until I held him down and kept him from hurting himself. (It was harsh!). His doctor prescribed Respiridal. (And yes I can admit that my pride and heart was hurt by knowing my child was put on an anti psychotic.) It is helping!!! I have recently learned that Respiridal is used for children with autism. Is anyone fluent in this medicine or have a kiddo using it? I know very little about it and I would love some idea of how it has affected other people. Thanks in advance.
