My 14yr old son is on citalopram (just increased to 40mg) for panic disorder. His doctor has just prescribed 0.5mg risperidone twice a day to boost the effect of the citalopram because he is still intensely anxious experiencing panic attacks and having trouble sleeping. Any success stories using this out there?
I have heard nothing good about Risperidone - for anything.
Ask the doctor to discontinue the Risperidone and put your son on
Klonopin or Zoloft, and perhaps another booster medication.
Good luck to your 14 year old son - I feel for him.
P.S. it sounds like he's been on citalopram for awhile - if something doesn't
work why take it? And, as I said, I have heard nothing good about Risperidone.
Again, Good Luck.
