Thanks for responding cinemachick...
I'm glad to hear that you have a positive experience with it. I was talking to the pediatrician about it yesterday and he kept saying how "good" it was and said it may take a couple weeks, but we should definately see a difference. He's only at .25 mgs of it...but then again, he's only 5....so smaller body. LOL
The script says to give it to him at 8 oclock. He's usually in bed by 7...one hour/one and half hours earlier than 8, wouldn't be too much of a problem would it???
I about keeled over at how much the script would have cost full price. That is just INSANE. And the pills are SOOOO tiny (which is nice because he can swallow them....good thing to start out on getting him to learn to swallow pills).
My doctor friend was explaining to me that this med focuses on the ups. That was my understanding from the way she was explaining it at least. And that is mostly the way my son is. So fingers crossed this one works.
The depakote was working so well...then BOOM...not working at ALL. They increased the dose and still not working. Since the bloodwork came back w/ it too high, we'd decreased it back down...so we're hoping this risperdal helps.
