Has anyone else noticed an increase of violent or aggressive behaviors since starting their child on resperdal or risperidone? My son has been on it for almost 3 weeks and is autistic. He has since tried to fight with his dad the last weekend he was there and just today bit me and left teeth marks and a bruise because I was making him hold my hand. His self-injurious behaviors have also gotten worse as he bites, hits, and pinches himself. Please help me with any info you may have!
