Risperadol and Lamictal for Asperger's/behavior issues

Kelly - posted on 08/30/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




My son has been on Risperadol for about 8 months at a low dose. Our new neuropsychologist just added Lamictal and increased his Risperadol dose a little bit. It's supposed to help with his meltdowns, sensory issues, compolusions, hyperactivity, etc. he is turning 4 in 2 weeks. Medications was our last resort and are also doing it at the same time as intensive therapy. Has any other moms out their had their child on these meds and what was your experiences? Thanks from Texas!! Kelly
