Hello, my 7 year old son was misdiagnosed with ASD at 5years old and ADHD at 3 and half. We have taken him off the ADHD med because it's one you can stop immediatly and saw a positive response. Next came the weaning of 1mg of risperidal 3x a day that was a complete nightmare. Aggression/attacking us ( he bite my arms so bad I couldn't wear short sleeve shirts for a month). Crying/screaming, violent, insomnia, constipation, vomiting, anxiety, concentration problems, confusion, crying spells, delusions, depersonalization, dizziness, headaches, irritability and the list goes on and on. Basically do NOT ever put your child on risperidal. So now he has been off completely for a month and a few days. Just wondering if anyone knows when it will be completely out of his system. He is still showing many signs of it being in his system. Any help and idea is VERY welcome. Thanks! Amie
