Bear with me and I will try to make this make sense.

Mood specialist at the Childrens hospital made the following recommendations which we are going to follow:

1. Remove Risperdal and increase seroquel from 6.25mg to 12.5mg

Call pdoc on Thursday, see him next Tuesday, Then Remove the 20mg Ritalin SR


2. See pdoc again in a week. Report his stability.

Increase Seroquel to 25mg and add either Depakote or Lithium, they haven't worked that out yet.

I am allowed to use clonidine up to 2 tabs per day on an as needed basis to either calm him or help put him to sleep.

His pdoc made a valid point that I am too quick to jump if I see side effects. He said I don't wait long enough to see if they will go away. This is something I should have known over the years of taking my own meds.

So the journey continues.
