Hi Nick,
Just noticed your previous postings about the violent tantrums and thought as a relevent comment, our son also has these violent outbursts which cannot, certainly by us, be linked to any specific event/issue/distraction. We saw a specialist last week in relation to it and he felt it may be a manifestation of his tic/jerk disorder. He suggested a further increase in risperadone may suppress it but, having just got his weight back under control, we are reluctant to increase the dosage. We are being referred to a Tourettes/Tics specialist in Birmingham and will let you know of any further info we receive. We fully understand how helpless you feel under these circumstances as any attepts to console our son just seem to prolong the outburst and results in further injuries to all concerned. Dave.
