For those of you with kiddos on abilfy, I have a question. difficult child was just increased to 5mg. I have always given it at night. psychiatrist mentioned difficult child may need a morning dose and I was just wondering if anyone had given abilify twice a day and did it seem more effective when given this way? difficult child has been getting increasingly irritable and moody. Frustrated to the point of tears too often. He has been hypomanic several times, and his attention has been lacking. I am concerned as school starts next week and I was hoping to have him in a better place. psychiatrist mentioned increasing Daytrana--but I want to wait on that as the last scrip he wrote me was for 90 days of Daytrana. I have 3 boxes of patches at home to use up and I really don't want to waste them unless I have to. They are too blasted expensive, but I would replace them if I had too. I am really nervous about difficult child's field trip next week. He leaves on Wednesday for a 2 night field trip. He will return on Friday. I dropped off his medications at the school yesterday and told the director of the school that I could leave work at anytime during the week. I am fortunate to work in a flexible dept during the week. I am not going on the field trip, I think that I am doing the right thing for difficult child, but I am going to be a nervous wreck.
