I found this site searching for information on risperdal. My son takes that and has gained weight he can't stop eating and he can't sleep. I want to take him off of it but I am not sure of the risks and benefits. He also takes concerta and zoloft. I honestly want to take him off everything and start from scratch but I know I can't do that without the doctors help. I am not even sure what he is clearly diagnosed with because they throw different things out I think they just toy with ideas since they don't have answers. It started with bipolar because his dad is but now they are saying hes p.d.d with adhd with mood disorder I don't believe a word they say anymore. We just moved and he is going to start at a new place I hope they can listen to me and possibly give me some answers. I tried to get him in Special Education where we were but because he is very smart I get ignored even though he clearly is having problems at school. Also hoping here that things will change the school called me on his first day asking what was going on and what they could do to help :-( anyway anyone that has some input similar children experience whatever it would be greatly appreciated.
