Hello this is my first time on this site.. I have a 5YO who has been diagnosed with ADHD for about 4mos and on Metdate CD. It is working but he has also had ODD and Conduct Disorder added to his diagnosis today. The prescribed him risperidone for him today ... Im scared of this medication but also scared of what will happen if I dont do something more. Ive tried alternative therapies and behavioral plans and even changing his foods... Nothing has worked except for the metadate CD.. Has anyone had any dealings with this medication or these disorders together? Is it something that can eventually be overcome later in life? I just feel like everyone else's children are normal and perfect, therefore no one understands my son except me.. sometimes not even me... **Please forgive me I know I should thank god that my son is healthy in all other ways and I do.. I am just overwhelmed.. any feedback is appreciated!
