    Just wanted to say that we tried Abilify again with a much smaller dose, 1.25 mg and difficult child is doing a bit better! No more aggression and slightly less explosive. And no sign of tremors. We are increasing to 2 mg so keep your fingers crossed!!


    PS. Family Therapy does seem to be helping! husband hasn't exploded in almost 2 weeks. And I'm feeling better because I have let out a lot of how I've been feeling without him exploding. And maybe, just maybe he has heard me...TBA

    fingers crossed that the medication adjustment continues to make a positive difference. And, that is great news about husband - hope that continues as well. Listen, just that you got him to go to therapy is a positive!

    What a positive update - thanks for sharing this with us. I think CD board parents crave hearing positives. :bravo:
