... y he does it and he says he doesn't know. His doc says it's just a nervous thing that kids with ADHD have sometimes. Well I don't think he ever had it before the resperidal and if he did, it wasn't this bad. Anyone else seen this kinda thing? ... (11 replies)
... My son's temper is awful and the resperidal was supposed to level his outbursts. It did until a recent bad outburst like I've never seen before from him. ... (11 replies)
... My son is on Concerta also and does wonderful with it, he use to be on the Resperiadal but he was getting depressed and was saying he didn't want to live, he also has the outbursts, so they took him off the resperidal and put him on seroquel and he is doing great he still has his outbursts when his meds need to be increased but otherwise he has been doing great, and is very...

... Yes, I agree with index, it could also simply be Concerta induced tics, but since it started since the Risperdal, I wondered if it was that drug instead. That's the problem when on several drugs, to figure out the culprit. However, the repeating of the same movements does sound tic to discuss this with the doc, although his explanation seemed inaccurate since... (11 replies)
... Well, I'll explain myself to answer the question. Most likely what the symptoms seem to be are called extrapyriamidal side effects, which are usually listed on the drug information. These involve involuntary movements and can go away with discontinuation of med although sometimes they can also be permanent. It is best to talk with the doctor about these and also tardive...

... Not true for all children. My 14 year old does great on Concerta. He's never been an outburst sort of fellow. Now, my 10 year old has PDD-NOS and outbursts are typical for him, meds or not. (11 replies)
... Aggression, anger, irritability, mood swings, depression...all can be caused by stimulant drugs. Risperdal is a major tranquilizer and tranquilizers are nervous system depressants. Could be that all his symptoms are actually drug-induced... (11 replies)
... I've been on Concerta 18mg and I am HORRIBLE - crying, depressed, outbursts, etc.. I was on Adderall but heard about 20 deaths in Canada and got paranoid so I got off of it almost a year ago and now I'm thinking of getting off of the Concerta. I'm 37 yrs old so I can't speak on the effects of kids but I know it's driving me away from everything. Time to seek a new doctor... (11 replies)
... My son, now 15, is also on Concerta 36 mg, and 2.5 mg of Risperdal. It must be a normal sort of treatment combination. (11 replies)
