  • The only issue we have is an insatiable appetite. So we have to make sure she doesn't eat everything and all the time. But they check her liver function regularly.

  • My son was on it for a couple of years, but the only problems we had was when he first took it he lost too much weight and we almost stopped it b/c of that. However, he adjusted to it and he was fine after that. Liver function tests were done regularly, as were tests for diabetes, but there was never any problems. We stopped the Risperdal b/c it wasn't working for him any more.

  • My psych tried to push us to put son on it. We pushed for food allergy testing. Turned out he had food sensitivities that were causing his problems. removed the food. removed the behaviors.
