    My 8 year old son has been on medication for about 3 years now for ADHD and ODD

    He has been on Concerta this entire time with occasional increases. He is presently taking 56 mg of Concerta. He has also been on 15 mg of Abilify for about 6 months. During this 6 months he has been suspended from school about a dozen times and he seems to talk of hurting himself more frequently than I ever remember him doing. I am wondering if this could be the Abilify. Has anyone out there who has a child on Abilify notice it affecting the child in a negative way??
