psychiatrist remains confused by difficult child. We are going to try Inderal and Focalin, the Focalin was the best of the stims, and we are hoping it will be better in the combination. There are definite mood things going on, but what do you do when mood stabilizers are not tolerated? His behaviors are not too extreme, although they feel like it to me, so I am leary of a lot of the medications like risperdal and geodon, as they can have a very tranquilizing affect. Also can cause a lot of weight gain. Is Lamictal a mood stabilizer, or an antipsychotic?
