His dr. wanted to increase his adderall and give him risperdal, but I told him I had reservations about the side effects of the risperdal. He said he understood and that the decision to whether or not place him on risperdal was mine. I was against raising the Adderall since he was doing ok on it. I decided to give the risperdal a try. I am GLAD I did!! It has caused such positive changes for him. He is not as agitated, moody, or grouchy. He is not as easily frustrated. He is overall a lot more calmer!! It has also helped his sleeping and his appetite. I am so thankful I decided to give it a try because as of right now, it has been a godsend! I can't believe how much he is different. Daycare even told me today that he had the best day he's ever had there today. It was so nice Occupational Therapist (OT) hear that and it's been so nice at home lately because I think the risperdal helps his ODD s symptoms and he does things when I ask without complaining. He is also not as whiney. We go back in a few weeks so he can check him out. Yay! Jut had to share the good news!
