My son takes Dexedrine for his ADHD daily and has been on .25 mg. of Risperdal for about two weeks now to help stabilize his moods. Wanted to know results of parents that have upped the dosage to .50 mg. - my son is 10 years old.

my son is six years old and takes risperal .5 at night 7-8 pm .
it takes me three hours to get him to got to bed and to sleep, without risperdal he will stay awake until 12 or 1 in the middle of the night i also give it to him occasionally during the day .25 if he is really aggressive and hard to discipline.

have you tried Melatonin in the evening. An orange tablet form is available at Vitamin Cottage that he can chew. I give my son 1 to 1 1/2 tabs about one hour before bedtime and he is asleep within an hour. The doc said it is safe to take with the Risperdal. The company is Source Naturals and the dosage is 2.5 mg. tablets - 120 count.
