Can any of you that are giving risperdal to your kids please post how it is working for your child? Adam started this med 8 days ago and I swera he is a changed child. He is focused, eating, PLAYING, interacting at school, Adam has not had a meltdown in a pretty good while I know that is probably due to mothering. He NEEDED a mother in his life fulltime. I know it is not all due to the med but some of it is. Some of you may remeber when I first joined this site I was getting a crash course in autism. Adams little life was so out of control and nothing helped, I did get some results with simple mothering to him but the major results are due to meds I think. I knew Adam was doing better before risperdal but the psychotic episodes were worse then ever until this med. Adams episodes were scarey, I was afraid he would hurt himself or someone else. I would just like to here others experience with the med, pro's and cons.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
