Hi im Erin and my 3 yr old son's name is Rhane. He hasn't been diagnosed with anything as of yet but his doctors are thinking he may have autism. He acts like your average 3 yr old except that he doesn't really talk like a normal toddler does. I have him enrolled in school & he's taking speech therapy. They all seem to be working because he's thrived since he start school. But he still have these out of control rages that comes from nowhere where he's screaming, scratching himself. So I told his doctors abt it and they prescribed him Risperidone. I'm s little wary of him taking this at such a young age but I was told it would help control his moods. Has anyone on here given there child this medication? And if so did it help?
