Risperdal is a medicine with many reported side effects. Some of these side effects are even worse than facial tics.Risperdal is not permitted for use in children under 12 years of age in the UK. I agree with the excellent diagnosis made by the psychiatrist, but I am not happy about using Risperdal in a boy as young as your son even though she has prescribed a very low dose. Please ask the psychiatrist to prescribe a safer product.
