Risperdal is an antipsychotic given for many disorders at this point although it was originally intended for schizophrenia.  There are other medications that are traditionally used for bipolar.  I think you really need to consult a pediatric psychiatrist for decisions revolving around medication-----  and there is also a doctor's forum here that may be of more assistence.  But that is all so personal to the child -----  only a professional in  your area can give you legitimate advice.  Good luck.
