Question risperidone

My daughter (8 years old) has taken risperidone for one week to reduce her tics (0.25 mg /d at first and now 0.5 mg/d). But so far it does not work. I wonder whether this is a good medicine for her. also I am not clear the difference between chronic tic disorder and tourette syndrome disorder.
If anyone knows please let me know. I am highly appreciated.

Re: risperidone

Hi Tourettes usually includes vocal tics with involuntary sounds or words coming out while tics are an involuntary movement.

In my opinion medicines are just a damaging problem to the body because the kidneys and liver must detoxify them causing extra wear and later on these organs may have problems or even failures.

Here is the website from the NIH to show the many side effects and problems of risperidone.
