I took difficult child to a new psychiatrist yesterday. We had to change due to insurance. Anyway, when asking about difficult child's medication's when we got to Geodon, I swear his mouth fell open. He said in no way am I trying to be judgemental but why is he on Geodon? I said well, the last doctor put him on it. He went into how it is not approved for children his age and then told me about some extreme side effects. He told me that the FDA almost did not approve this drug because of the fatal heart rhythm it can cause. Apparently there have been several children just go code blue on this medication. Just wondering if anyone else had heard this. Needless to say he changed difficult child.
