We are having such trougble with my daughter not behaving and she is impossible to deal with. Abilify has not worked at all. In fact it made her start being violent with classmates and I finally got it out of her system and the violence stopped. She is just totally moodly, irritable and defiant with her impulsive and ridgitity due to her brain development disorder. Risperdone worked great but could not deal with side affects as far as (weight gain and appetite) and abilify made things worse. as far as weight gain and appetite. How is Geodone or Lamictal? Any positives or negatives to say for those two drugs. We need help!!!
