as far as i know, TD cannot be fully cured (or perhaps, just very rarely fully rehabilitated), but for many patients, especially one as young as your daughter, there can be much improvement in symptoms, even if there is no full recovery.

as for the lawsuit, i'm not sure. i'm not aware of risperdal being that serious a danger for TD, as in the amount of people who walk away from risperdal with TD is less common than the more traditional anti-psychotics.

however, your daughter was very very young to be on such a drug, and i would check to see if risperdal is even indicated for the use in small children. also, if you were not told the possible side effects of the drug, you have a possible malpractice suit.

it's my full belief that primary care physicians should not be allowed to deal with psychotropics.
