My son is currently taking, 500mg depakote twice a day, risperidone 1mg once day and as needed for serious mood swings and adderall 30 mg twice a day. As of late my son has been very defiant and confertational when spoken too. Some of his adderall medicine has disappeared. He's been cussing at me and my wife. Just very hostile, as he's screaming he's clutching his head saying he can't control it. Now my son was just released from a residential, and has been defiant but to this extent. He also admitted earlier this year and noticed a change. Medicine has continued to change. But my worries are these too many medicine. Now he not clinically diagnosed as bi polar but the Doctor knows. He had hard time focusing, but not is calm as far fiddling around. Agitation is extreme now, disappearing calling us cuss words. But to come home later come. His biological mother had mental issues and did drugs. I don't want to lose my son, but seems he's mentally getting worse and I'm seeing he shouldn't take adderall because of the side effects. He's outta control and need help. I'm thinking of letting him just take the depakote and riperdone as needed.
