Hi! I don't post here very often, but I probably should! My 6yo son has diagnosis of predominant Mood Disorder not otherwise specified, ADHD Combined, and ODD. He's been ron Risperdal .5 2x day and gained a few pounds the last few monts. He got a new psychiatrist, and he suggested we switch to Abilify. We've tried this before, at a higher dose, and all he did was sleep, sleep, sleep. Supposed to start 2mg at bedtime and go back to psychiatrist in a month. I'm curiuos, does the sleepiness go away? Why didn't the doctor ask about checking blood sugar/cholesterol levels to get a base line? Is my son going to gain more weight? When we stop the Risperdal and start Abilify, how is he going to feel and behave until the Abilify starts to work? How long until the Abilify starts to work? I'm so worried that he's going to have a hard time in school until this starts working...I'm so anxious about it! Any advise or experience would be soo great!
