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??
