those nasty hallucinations

Posted by ginny on July 16, 1999, at 20:09:52

I need real life advice from those who have experienced hallucinations and have lived to tell about it!

I have a 12 year old son who experiences severe emotional disturbance, characterized by mood disorder, thought disorder and hallucinations.

We have done reasonably well on Depakote, Dexedrine and Risperdal, but the hallucinations are a pain. At a small dose of Risperdal, he thought his Brett Favre action figure would come alive and clean his room. Soon, he thought voices were telling him to kill kids at school. We have moved it up and up and he is on 6mgs. now, but they persist. They are more background, he doesn't understand them, but they scare him. Any tricks for making them go away? He cannot take Haldol for TD reasons. He's already taken Serentil and Zyprexa. One more thing, is this a typical pattern for hallucinations? Don't they occur more when things are quiet, like before bed? (I get asked if he's making up imaginary friends, but I don't think they usually scare you and you don't beg for them to go away...)

Anyway, thanks for reading all this....
