Has the same paediatrician been changing the medications and dosages? When last was your son assessed by him/her? Children taking stimulants should be seen by the prescribing physician at 6 monthly intervals to monitor the dosage. Concerta reduces aggression in some and elevates it in others; unfortunately there is no way to determine what the effect will be on your son prior to taking the Concerta. Risperdal is prescribed to reduce anxiety and can reduce aggressive tendencies as well; increasing this dosage may be dependent on the effects of the Concerta.
