Hi my 13 year old son has been diagnosed with adhd and odd. We tried medikinet 2 years ago but it made him very anxious then stratera and that made he sleep for hours without helping him concentrate. Took him off both. Now that he is a teenager his odd is bad. He is rude and loses it very easily especially with me. Not his dad whom he is afraid of but we are separated so I get the brunt of it all. His psychiatrist has suggested he start rispectal 0.25ml the lowest dose. Is it the same as risperdal? Also i am petrified of the side effects is it because the doses are too high that the kids are having seizures and twitches? Petrified help please.
