Ok...back from another visit with DS at the psychiatric hospital and have some concerns about the Risperdal he's on. He's on day 2 1/2 of it and he's exhausted. Visiting hours start at 6 pm and the kid that normally gets to sleep around 9:30-10 pm against his will is ASKING to take a nap. He's like a zombie. Granted he's really compliant and the oppositional behavior seems to be gone, but he's spacey and exhausted. We played a board game and the kid who's a mathmatical genius was making careless mathmatical mistakes the entire game. And what really concerns me, but I don't see it on the side effects list I found online (I'm going to keep looking) is he's complaining that he now needs glasses! He says he can't see things far away now. We were sitting on his bed and I asked him if he could read his name tag on his door about 10 feet away (which he could read clear as day when he got there) and he said he could barely tell there was even ink on the white tag! It's a large tag with fairly large print. I don't wear glasses and he has always been able to see father and clearer than me, and now all of a sudden he can't read 10 feet away from him...can't even see that there's print to be read. What are your thoughts? My understanding is that he's at the lowest dose of .5 mg 2 times a day.
