I thought I would update you on Elliott experience with Risperdal thus far. Yesterday evening, we began to notice Elliott becoming very um…..hyper. I was at an appointment last night and Lizze was saying that Elliott was bouncing off the walls….literally. He would literally, run into the wall.
Now Risperdal isn’t an antidepressant, so I’m not real sure what’s going on. I would better understand if it was an antidepressant, as that would point back to the whole bipolar thing.
This has me confused and concerned. This morning, he seemed to do pretty well. In fact, I didn’t have to fight him on anything, now that I think about it.
Perhaps, last night was unrelated and just your run of the mill overstimulation. Well, here’s to hoping…. 🙂

Could it be that maybe the medicine is just relaxing him enough now that he feels "okay" to be a kid? You know what I mean? Like, he was so anxious and worried about every little thing before that he was sort of preventing himself from being a kid basically. Now maybe the medicine is working and balancing him out and he feels free to be a kid. I don't know, I'm not a medical expert or anything, but I was just thinking that maybe he was just feeling a better balance now and free to be him! I know that when I take all of my Bipolar medications it is sort of a "free" feeling, I guess that's the best way for me to describe it. <3
