My son Corey age 4.5 was diagnosed with ADHD in Aug 2002. He was having terrible problems with aggression and impulse control. The Psych put him on Risperdal which helped immediately, unfortunately he also put on about 12 pounds since then. He is only 4.5 nd weighs 57 pounds!! The doc recently also added topomax which I don't know if it's helping and increased his Risperdal to counter the weight gain. At this last visit she also added Ritalin to see if he can handle it. I think the idea is to see if his body will accept it and then take him off the Risperdal, but in the meantime I am very concedrned baout putting him on all these different types of meds at the same time. What do you think? Am I overreacting or would this bother yout oo? I need advice on how to proceed.
Thanks for your time
Mom of Corey and Nathan
