Hi I'm new to this forum. But I'm in need of some help. My son. Has been on abilify for 2 years now and its worked amazingly with controlling his aggressive outbursts. Well that is until they started adding stimulants. Has anyone else dealt with this? When on adderall or concerta its like his not even taking the abilify.

Adderall can definitely cause aggression/ irritibility/ negativity, etc. If you think it's a step backwards I'd trust your own judgement. It works differently in others so if someone says it's a harmless drug for them it may have been, but that doesn't mean it's acceptable for your son. You know what you see and you have to be the judge.
