Re: 9 year old with motor and vocal tics and some ocd
I take Haldol for my tics and it works wonders for me. Haldol minimizes my tics so much that people don't even realize I have Tourette Syndrome.
Is there a chance that your daughter had an anxiety disorder you didn't know about before starting Risperdol and that the stress of the chemicals in Risperdol caused the effects of the disorder to surface? I have Tourette's, but I also have OCD and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (with panic attacks); however, my anxiety didn't surface until I had a stressor in my life that caused it to emerge.
