My son's dr. told me risperdal starts working right away. My son has been on it for about six months. We had to up the dosage once but his behavior has significantly improved. We have also made several other changes that have probably contributed to his improvement (behavioral therapy, moved to special ed classroom at school, and using a different parenting strategy). If you are not seeing improvement you should talk to your dr. Don't get discouraged and don't draw any conclusions about the meds without time and dr. advice.
