Brief Answer: You can give pacitane Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to health care magic. Sizodon is resperidone. It can cause extra pyramidal symptoms and tremors. I think your kid may be experiencing these only. Pacitane is the right choice for extra pyramidal symptoms. You can give 0.25 mg which is the right dose twicea day. The symptoms should settle down in another 2 days. Do not worry. If still persisting after 2 days, your kid needs reassessment. Note : Always keep all medicines used in home locked in a high cupboard. This is to prevent future accidents. Regards Dr Arun
