Someone suggested this and I thought it was a good idea. We have to remember that everyone is different and that this isn't a "yes" or "no" on anything, just our own children's experineces. I'll start. Ritalin was my son's first medication and it didn't do anything much for him. He was then put on Buspar: No biggie. Concerta: mild aggression and meanness. Adderrall made him nuts. He was both aggressive and violent on it. We discontinued, didn't need that. Prozac was the absolute worst. He got almost psychotic on it and at school wouldnt' stop talking (this is a child with autism who rarely said anything) and he kept getting on his desk and jumping off and saying "I can fly." Prozac was also very bad for my teen daughter. She pulled a knife of herself and told me afterward that Prozac made her feel "Shaky, unihibited, crazy, out-of-control." Celexa did the same thing to her. Back to son: Risperdal and Zyprexa gave him flu-like symptoms, headaches, depression, extreme sleepiness and he started the beginnings of a movement disorder. Made him extremely hungry. Seroquel was better, but sedated him a lot and he was still hungry. Depakote: Made son more hyper and hungry. He gained a lot of weight and bounced around and cried a lot. Daughter took it for a few months and said said "It makes me feel stupid. I can't think. I can't work." She hated it and quit taking it. She got ovarian cysts from it. Lithibod made son pee on himself every single night. Once he stopped taking it, the peeing stopped. He was starving on it. Topomax made son extremely hyper yet cognitively dulled. Me: amitriptylene (hallucinations), imiprimine (hallucinations), nortriptylene (it didn't give me bad side effects, but was only maybe 50% effective for serious depression), fluxotine (very hyper, manic, nightmares, sleepiness/then it pooped out completely and I felt severely depressed even when dose was raised so I quit taking it) Zoloft: within two weeks of taking it I was in the hospital for akathesia, one of the ickiest feelings in the world. I had a great initial reaction to this medication--the first day rocked Ritalin: Made me very high, then I crashed and was depressed. The depression lasted several months. Lithium: I felt very out of it, depressed, horrible. I quit taking it. Paxil: At first didn't work, by six weeks I was better than ever in my life. Klonopin has been great for me. No panic attacks or agoraphobia for fifteen years. So that's my mix.
