I have deleted a comment by our consistently anonymous friend from NH, in which commenter Amber was chastised for calling Risperdol a "miracle drug" because many people have negative reactions to it in terms of weight gain, honeymoon periods that come crashing down, etc.
We all know that drugs which work for one person may not work for another. I received scores of positive testimonials re: Abilify. It turned out to be a horrible choice for Leelo. But it has proven beneficial for many other children, a few of whose parents also used the term, "miraculous."
I consider Leelo's reaction to Risperdol somewhat miraculous. It has transformed many aspects of his and our lives for the better. Our formerly angry and unsettled boy is currently a bundle of happy playfulness. Who could resist superlatives in such a situation? I know that his buoyancy and clarity may not last, but we are certainly enjoying his joy, moment by moment.
Short version: Don't tell other people how to feel.
And, a reminder: respectful disagreement is fine, and encouraged. Disrespectful statements towards other commenters will disappear.
