Risperdal can cause the weight gain. Anti-psychotics "quiet the brain". Could it be the medication was prescribed as a sleep aid? Typically risperdal has been for the elderly. I have seen it prescribed for children who have explosive episodes. I would recommend you return to the doctor for an explaination. My son is diagnosed ADHD inattentive type. He is currently taking adderall. He does not have a "fast" speed. He does suffer from anxiety. Do your children exhibit anxiety symptoms? It could be the doctor is attempting to address those symptoms with risperdal. I would be very cautious regarding giving a child an anti-psychotic medication.
