My daughter has been on risperidone for many years and had good luck with it controlling moods and behavioral outbursts. Unfortunately her prolactin levels have gone extremely high and now she also has high cholesterol despite a fairly good diet and normal BMI. Her doctor wants to take her off the risperidone and try something else. Any suggestions on alternatives other than abilify(she had an adverse reaction to abilify a few years ago)?

I have two children with autism, (a five year old daughter and almost 3 year old son). My 11 year old brother also has autism and my parents seem to have tried every single biomedical treatment, diet, etc. and they swear by them all. My daughter is in a verbal behavior kindergarten and I would like to try to add another approach to try to help her but am unsure of where to start. Anyone have any suggestions or words of advice about treatments?
