My D is being given Risperdal to calm herself. She is inpatient. Getting worried as last to last night her dosage was reduced and she was a little agitated during our visit. 

Not sure if it was due to the drug being reduced or because she was tired and frustrated with her ordeal. 

Has anyone's child been prescribed that drug? If so, any side effects that you may have noticed? Anyone suggests we not give that to our D?

Please help! 
Hi, I would speak to my pediatrician and/or pharmacist. Psychiatric meds effect each person differently. Good luck! Sending prayers!
