This is the very same battle I fought for 3 years with one of my children. Resperidone (brand name Risperdal) is a heavy hitter drug that has far reaching side effects that are sometimes irreversible. One of these is tardive dyskinesis, the involuntary tics that you've described. Sometimes these go away after the drug is stopped, sometimes they're permanent. Extreme weight gain, is another common side effect, insomulence (sleepiness), as well as the formation of male breasts, because of the hormone imbalances. The drug has been linked to pituitary cancer in rats, and with a rare but sometimes fatal neurological disorder. The manufacturer's own label warns that the drug should never be used as a first line form of treatment for anything.

In my case, I was my son's medical consenter, and I declined consent to have this harmful drug administered. CPS added medical neglect to their list of allegations. I had to get a court order to have my sone examined by in independent psychiatrist, who then wrote a scathing report about how the state was misdiagnosing and mistreating my son. CPS had to relent.

This is a tough battle to fight, but one well worth it. I can give you more information by private mail, if you so desire it.

Thank you family man I have written a letter addressing my concerns stating the side effects and I sent that to everyone from my attorney the judge, foster parents ,docter ect.The doctor refuses to do anything about it and stated she would put him on abilify instead or give him something for side effects but she straight out refuses to take him off of it and the case worker said she would discuss with her supervisor however to this day no change.I even sent my documentation and the doctor never even read my letter just shoved it to the side saying that he had a severe behavior disorder and needed to be managed in the fostercare home also said that cps would have to sign something in order for her to take him off of this drug.a document that goes against doctors recomondations. Basically they r useing these kids as guinne pigs for their FDA studies on its side effects and risks. They know there is nothing anyone will be able to do to get them off so they get their long term studies.crooked doctors working for the state and the FDA.Just one more thing they do to these helpless children.I won't give up and I'll let everyone know if any of my efforts work.I'm currently going to contact Ombudsman again this time by phone since the e-mail didn't appear to get any response.These people can be very helpful when you can't get any response from your case worker.
