 Emily's been on her new medication for 6 days now.  It's still not helping, although she has lost a pound.  The other medication helped so much and so quickly, I was really hoping that we'd see the same thing with this.  *sigh*  Hopefully soon because this is exhausting!  She gets so angry now at the least little thing.  I mean, she rages and she's been hitting and kicking.  She's 9.  She knows better but she just gets so angry...and then she's super hyper and giggly...

 Em was originally on Abilify, and I agree it was amazing.  Unfortunately, she gained 15 pounds in only a few months.  This is a girl that dances 7+ hours a week and eats fairly healthy.  The risk to her health just ultimately outweighed the benefits of the medicine.  She's been off that for 3 weeks now and has started to lose a little.  She's on Geodon now.  I'm really hoping it helps, it's just taking longer to "kick in"
