Customer Question
What do you think...

What do you think and have reviews about giving a 6 year old "risperal" for add hyperactivity impulsive disorder?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

He may have mild autism, has an IQ of 108, is underweight and is very active. I believe the ADD hyperactivity has caused his school problems in the classroom environment. Extremely alert and smart but a bit immature.

Hello, this is Dr. Stan, thank you for your question. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 30 years of patient experience and I am here to help you today.

The medication is approved for pediatric patients and will slow down hyperactivity. I like this class of medication better than others being used for the same purpose such as Ritalin. Risperdal has been used successfully for many years. Discuss with his Pediatrician or get an opinion from a Pediatric Psychiatrist or Pediatric Neurologist.

I hope I have addressed your concerns.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned your 5 star rating today.

Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen ( rating me now does not close your question). We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
