out of sheer desperation...Risperdal
. I can't believe I'm saying this, but Risperdal
changed our lives. My son is so much less impulsive, has far fewer meltdowns and overall is a much happier child. I realize this doesn't work for everyone, but my point is not to give up on meds. Try to weigh the benefit vs. the risk. Yes, the risks are frightening, but so is a childhood filled with unhappiness and stress and depression for others in the family.
