Help me Lord . . .

Dustin went back on his full dose of Abilify this morning. He is much happier. He is less impulsive.

The constant chatter is back FULL FORCE. He absolutely cannot control sounds from coming out of his ever-loving mouth. He is talking NON STOP, making no sense, making fart noises, saying "Did you hear me?" every fifteen seconds, repeating what everyone says.

Don't get me wrong. I will take this over the running out and hitting me anytime. But my ears are already tired and I have only been home one hour.

Anyone else notice this with Abilify? Or am I just lucky?

Just to clarify, I will welcome this with open arms if the underwear boy stops his daily trek out into the wide world.

Nope, haven't noticed that with Abilify.

My kid talked a mean streak both before starting and after.

Haven't noticed it. It's done wonders for our guy, although if the dose is too high, it makes him pretty irritable.

Reading in my room as Lil man is falling asleep. (He sleeps in my room as is too scared to sleep without me near.) So, I am VERY ready for him to fall asleep and finally SHUT-UP!

Lights out. Finally. Silence (is Golden). Me reading.

And then this.


Which is ironically, exactly what I did ... which started the "what are you laughing about mom.."

Lil man going to sleep is now in "start over" mode.

Well worth it though!
