we kicked the Geodon. Was stimulating (I'm laughing, because wouldn't that be typical of my son?). Our choices are, very obviously, limited. The doctor, again (if you remember, he tried this once), suggested the Tegretol. There is an interaction warning with Lithium and Tegretol. After I reminded him of that (and he said, "oh, I don't remember that" ~ sigh), he suggested we try a different type of drug. So, now he's thinking Klonopin, Ativan type drugs? Like Valium, is that right? Experience? I talked to another member, who said (I think) the Klonopin was addicting. But at this point, I'm not worried about addictive, I'm worried about making Dylan productive. The Lithium is doing it's job, and pretty well. The atypical antipsychotics are not going to be the add on. Abilify did its job, and died out. None of the others are an option. So, those of you on them, or with kids on them, I'm wondering your opinions? He also mentioned that Equetro, which I'm 100% sure is an artsy fartsy name for Tegretol LOL, which I adamantly said no to. I don't know about the psychiatrist sometimes. Ugh. Thanks again!
