Q.

Epilum &  Risperdal

Goeie dag.

Ek het n seun van 11 jaar oud. Die daokters het op die ouderdom van 7maande agter gekom dat sy klein brein ontrent glad nie ontwikkel het nie. Hoofsaaklik het dit te doene met spraak en belaans. Vandag praat hy wel net enkel woorde en het baie goeie belaans en kan alles doen van hardloop en fiets ry. Sy konsentrasie vlak is egter net baie baie swak en is op die bo-genoemde medikasie al basies sy hele lewe lank. Dis 2 keer n dag, Epilum 8ml en Risperdal 1.25ml. My kind is baie gesond en eet ook baie baie goed.

My vraag is. Is daar moontlik ander soort medikasie wat ek kan probeer om sy konsentrasie vlak te verhoog? As hy kan konsentreer sal ek hom heel normaal kan maak en dis seer vir my as ouer om te sien die jare gaan verby en hy vorder nie.
Sy dokters verhoog net jaarliks sy medikasie en daar gebeur niks nie. Kan dit wees dat hy nie eers meer reageer op die medikasie nie?

Enige hulp of raad sal uit die diepste van my hart wardeer word.

Baie dankie
Willie

Willie,

Ek het my seun afgehaal van Ritalin.

Ek is verwys deur sy skool na ''n neuroloog wat aan hulle ook bekend is. Na ''n ondersoek het hy hom op Strattera en Risperlet (risperdal) geplaas het.

Gaan baie baie beter en sien ons die jaarliks.

Sterkte
