Re: sleep aids or meds for sleep anxiety in 6yo

Yes, I would definitely discuss risperdal and similar type drugs with his doctor. We had similar type problems when my son (now 21) was your son's age and meds that calmed his overly anxious nervous system down were helpful.

Many kids with autism seem to get good results with risperdol. Zyprexa was also very helpful as my son got older.
