My son stopped 3mg of Risperidal two weeks ago he is 7 started

Customer Question

My son stopped 3mg of Risperidal two weeks ago he is 7 started on small doses since October 2013 and the kept increasing they increased to 3mg on 12/9/15 he is very aggressive especially towards me when should we expect the detox to end approx? He was misdiagnosed at 5 on spectrum but has had pandas since about 3 and half so Risperidal is worst drug for pandas and made him worse that's why they kept increasing the dosage but made him worse. Any idea/ help on when we can expect his body to completely rid of this horrible drug??? Thanks
