Hi guys I mostly lurk but I had to come out of hiding to post this becuase I am just really stressed and confused. My son is 7 ( just turned ) Diagnosed ODD, CD and anxiety. Fits all criteria. Neurologist and psychiatric. agree on diagnosis. He has tried Intuniv with drastic change but had to go off due to hallucinations. Tried Tenex and we saw no change in his behavior. He was still constantly in trouble at school. Psychiatrist kept recommending Risperdal but after reading all the scary side effects I would repeatedly refuse. Conduct got so bad at school and at home that I finally broke down and allowed the medication. It's working, but now im sat here obsessing over him developing long term side effects such as ticks, learning disabilities, man boobs, you name it. I have severe anxiety already and I just cannot deal any longer with using my son as a lab rat. I want to pull him off of the Risperdal but it is working. So what do I do? I know benefits outweigh risks here but honestly, Id rather have a child with conduct disorders than a child with long term ticks or cognitive issues due to a medication that was meant to help him. I guess I just need a pep talk here. Thanks!
