Has anyone use risperdal to treat ADHD and help with Autism? We are coming off of Abilify and switching to risperdal and I'm not sure how this is going to affect my six year old, Alex. We had increased his abilify and he NEVER stops eatting and is totaly wired all the time. WE medicate him because with out it he can not function and he compains about the sensory issues more. The dr. is having us switch to the risperdal and I'm not sure how this will help him or how good the success rate is. I know my other son used it for his mood disorder and it did not help him but this is for a differant disorder. I hate changing meds.
