Is putting a child on Risperdal for SPD common practice & does anyone have experience with this?
My Daughter has many tantrums throughout the day and often hits her brother, we are never sure what is going to set her off, though we have identified some triggers. Her doctor has suggested we start her on Risperdal to help her to be able to handle her emotions, I am greatly concerned about putting her on this type of medication or any medication that has the possibility of doing damage to her developing mind. (She is 5) Does anyone have a SPD child on medication? Any input is welcomed.
