... holding spells that many children go through, but my wife isnt very satisfied with the conclution as she says it is much worse than the dr thinks. Anyway, the dr prescribed risperdal for my boy and I was just wondering is it safe for a baby? I have been reading up and the only thing I got was ages 5 years and older? Any facts?
Can you describe his seizures? There isn't a snowballs chance in h@# that I'd give my baby son risperadal. If its "breath holding" what is the purpose of the risperdal? Here is what the nih says about treatment of RAS-Education and reassurance remain the mainstay in the management. Some children benefit from medical treatment with atropine or fluoxetine; however, there is a lack of evidence for pharmacological treatment. Cardiac pacing is the only definitive treatment, and is reserved for frequent, severe cases in joint consultation with the cardiologist..
I can't find anywhere that says give a baby it for either of these occurrences.
I would probably take the baby to a place like ai dupont pediatric hospital for evaluation.
