Today is day 6 of Elliott’s journey with Risperdal. For those new to the Lost and Tired blog, Elliott struggles with rather extreme levels of anxiety.
His anxiety had reached a point that it was/is interfering with his life, not to mention, driving those around him crazy. The poor kid worried about everything and we don’t want that for him.
I wanted to share with you all how the first week or so goes. I thought someone might benefit from our experience….
So far, we have had some mixed results with the Risperdal. Having said that, he is having much better days now.
He seems much more relaxed and able to enjoy life. While he still struggles from time to time, the experience thus far has been overwhelming positive. In fact, Elliott had another no warnings day at school. That’s awesome… 🙂
Check out the picture below. Elliott is sharing with you how many warnings he received at school today….. Zero. 🙂
I’m sooooo proud of him…

For years as a kid I suffered from anxiety and panic attacks so I really hope that Elliott does well with Risperdal. As an adult I do not suffer anywhere near as much but I think my childhood and teenage years were blighted by my condition so I wouldn´t want anyone else to go through that.
For us Risperdal was great initially. Negatived (after about 11 months) was weight gain and it funked out. Liam has been on several AP's but he is comorbid ASD/BP. Hugs to Elliot, hugs yo you all.,
