Recently moved and have no current psychiatrist. I am having to wean him off his medications but I am very nervous and afraid of what will happen with his behavior. How do I wean of of Risperdone safely? We currently have no insurance and I am feeling helpless - he needs to be medicated but Risperdone is causing major side effects and major weight gain. With risperdone we swapped angry and outbursts for low self esteem and being teased for his weight. Any suggestions???
