• Risperidone

    Risperidone (Risperdal) has been demonstrated to be effective in the treatment of irritability in children, adolescents, and adults with ASDs and ADD and ADHD. Risperidone treatment coupled with parent management training was also found to reduce irritability, stereotypic behavior, and hyperactivity/noncompliance more effectively than risperidone monotherapy (using only the drug alone) in children and is used to reduce aggression, irritability, repetitive behaviors, anxiety or nervousness, and depression.

    Doses range from 1 to 10 mg/day, sometimes in divided doses.

    Side effects included mild, transient sedation, increased appetite, and weight gain.
