Yes it is safe. My younger brother has ADHD and Asperger's Sydrome and he takes Concerta and Risperdal every morning. I would still recommend asking your doctor if it is safe for HER to use, as medications have different effects on different people. I know this sounds like a Scientologist. But my neighbor's mom told his psychitrist to prescribe him something because she thought he had a problem. He just wrote a ticket for Resperidal without and hesitation. I am glad he didn't take it, it is schizophrenic medication. I am sure what ever your daughter has is much, much better than any single side effect from Risperdal. Please don't let her take it, you will lose your daughter.
