My step son went to spend the summer with his mother, she took him off his risperidone. We did not know this she did not tell us so when he came home we keep him on the same time table. What could happen now.

You need to talk to his Dr. about this. Taking a child off their medication without Dr. supervision is not a wise idea at all.

If your step-son is home now, then I would chart his behavior - note what is better/worse etc.. then take that info with you when you have his Dr. visit.

I would make sure to have discussions with his mother before he visits again about the medication.

Take care,
