Reply To: Running out of patience..


You may not be dealing with constant arguing and rage/super emotional filled opposition as we were last year with my 8 year old son, but we ended up with an ODD diagnosis to which the super low dose risperidone made all the difference. He is SUPER intelligent, highly impulsive (and on Intuniv for that), and on low dose Adderall for focus. We are consistent with discipline for disrespect, talking back, lying, sneaking iPads, etc — but it was the constant arguing even with teachers and principals that led us down the path of ODD diagnosis. Not sure that is helpful, but thought worth sharing.
