The literature states the following:
Risperdal® is indicated for the treatment of irritability associated with autistic disorder in children and adolescents aged 5–16 years, including symptoms of aggression towards others, deliberate self-injuriousness, temper tantrums, and quickly changing moods [see Clinical Studies (14.4)].
Why was he put on the risperdal? Is his behavior improving with the treatment? I would be seeking behavioral therapies along with the drug therapy with the intention of using the drug therapy for as short a time as possible.
