Risperidone - noted side effects in your child?

The doc just put my 14 yr old on this drug. He had tried Celexa with no change in behavior. My son's "issues" are so odd the doc hasn't diagnosed him yet. He's just trying a few meds to see what works. Anyways, this new med seems to have side effects so I'm wondering if anybody's child has experienced negative ones such as sleepiness, weight gain, or worse.

  • Well, we let him take it before school and he almost passed out in class. Guess we learned extreme sleepiness is a side effect.

    Thanks for the bump!
