Hi Dr. Peng,

I have NOT redudced the Risperidone at 9am to 1/4 tablet. The sleepiness is not bothersome on most days and isn't severe, so I held off to observe him some more.... If I see this week in next that indeed he is being VERY sleepy, then I will reduce the medicine.

1. Anthy is making more attempts to talk and his speech therapist recognizes his efforts too.

2. He seems to be less hyperactive and is calmer
