My son was just prescribed this. Wanted to know more about side effects and if it helped your child with aggression and mood swings.

My son is 10 (ADHD), also being tested for ASD. He takes Concerta, Ritalin, and Melatonin at night. We just started Abilify last week for his awful mood swings and violent outbursts. We have just gone up to 4mg, possibly increasing to 5 next week. I REALLY hope this does something to help! Did it help your son?
