I'm not sure what the deal is with difficult child. We started risperdal @ .5mg back in October. Saw immediate results. But now, we're starting to see some of her symptons again. We're not sure if its due to the excitement of the holidays and all the **** that's been going on or if we should ask the psychiatrist to tweak the dosage. I got an email from the teacher today saying difficult child isn't getting all of her work done in class. The teacher has complained that she's not focusing very well. I really don't want to try the stimulants again because she was incredibly violent on Concerta. I know its a trial and error thing with the medications but I'm just getting frustrated with everything now... I'm beginning to wonder if they even have difficult child diagnosed correctly..
