Our expert says:
Dear ADD Mom,
I understand your concerns, but actually rom a distance, not having examined your child and not able to know all the relevant details, it's hard to assess a particular plan of medications. This sounds on the face of it like rather a lot of meds, and neither Aropax nor Risperdal are usually used in children, or in children with simple ADD. Maybe the pediatric neurologist has made some more complex diagnosis, like the Pervasive DD, which I would have expected him to have discussed with you in detail, including the reasons for the different meds, and their risks and benefits.
YOu could, if you are unhappy, arrange for a second opinion from a child psychiatrist, to set your mind more at rest
