He takes 0.5 in morning and 0.5 in evening.2 and a half years.
That is very helpful. I understand its one or the other of the above , not both to replace the risperidone, right?
Can you tell me how many patients you have seen make this switch and if it improved symptoms every time?
How often should a patient have a blood test if being treated with the anti psychotics?
Excellent advise . Thank You. My son's doctor changed him to 10 mg of Aripiprazole and my son has seen dramatic improvements in a very short time. He says its an anti depressant, anti psychotic and gives him energy all at same time. However, doctor did not mention about the tests you refer to. can you tell me what this testing is and why its important?
Now that my sons energy/ mood has improved the next issue is that the risperidone made him put on 50 lbs of weight.He used to be trim and fit and being in his 20's the weight has caused depression.Is aripiprazole known for weight gain? What can you recommend for the weight issue?
Hi again, my son says the energy he feels from the medication is wonderful..... he asks if there is anything else he can take for extra energy. Right now he is taking vivance. He says that before he was taking dexederine, these are for his ADD. He says that although the dexederine was giving him energy and focus it was causing him to feel a little paranoid. The vivance gives him energy but not the same focus capacity as dexederine or adder all..... Are there other alternatives? What are they? Is there anything that can give you razor sharp focus? For studies and exams? Look forward to your answer......
Do you know anything about Phenylpiracetam
I cant tell you how happy myself and my son are with your advise because there has been a big improvement since taking the meds you said to switch to. It is fantastic that you can supply answers to questions instead of waiting weeks upon weeks for an appointment with NHS doctors. Where are you located? My son has had many different diagnosis since diagnosed with ADHA in early childhood. He has been diagnosed with bi polar, schizo affective, schizophrenia, depression, adult add. It has been hard for him to trust with so many variations of diagnosis . He said if you are within traveling distance he wants to be your patient. Hopefully you are within easy reach for an appointment?
