Confused about Risperdal

We are still giving Andy Risperdal. So far in the three weeks of the meds, he has had insomnia twice. During the 2nd week of meds, he almost seemed to be getting worse. However, his third week now, he seems to be much better. We are confused. Whether to keep him on it, is he really benefitting from it, we are not sure.

My main goal is to have his behavior out of the meltdowns-all-day realm in time for school in the fall. I guess if the medication seems to be doing that, we'll keep moving forward with it. If we start to see a lot of insomnia, or daytime crankiness, then we'll reconsider. I'll have to keep a close eye over the next couple of weeks.
