Good morning everyone, My difficult child (11 year old) was on depakote, risperdal, and focalin. (been on focalin for quite a while) Depakote make moods alot worse. so we weaned off of that....nothing but focalin for 5 days...some improvement but....not really too much. went back to dr. yesterday, told her everything that is going on....she rx'ed lamictal and seroquel (25mg @ bedtime). She is leaning towards BiPolar (BP) diagnosis. Does anyone have any experience with these medications? I need something good yall. I feel like I keep getting run over by a truck, daily. I know you guys can relate. Also, is it normal to have to try several medications to get it right? How long before I know if something is going to work?
