My son is 5 yrs old and was just proscribed risperdal 2 x daily at .25 mg is that a good dosage for such a young age.

Do you mind me asking why they prescribed Risperdal?I know that my uncle takes it because he is schizophrenic.I also read that in Germany it is not used on kids under 16,only in special cases it is used by children over the age of 5,but only for 6weeks and together with therapy. So i cant tell you if the dosage is good.Did a psychiatrist prescribe it?
