Today Damian started his 3rd medication change up since he started at Hillside. He is now taking Latuda 2 times a day and they have doubled his dosage for lamictal. They are also starting him on amantadine. He is free of the Lithium and he his more alert now and doesn’t fall asleep during the day.
He is coming home this Saturday on an overnight pass and then next week we will bring him home for a 48 hour pass during spring break. Garrett and I are both excited and terrified but honestly that is a double emotion that most parents have when their child attempts something new. And this will definitely be new for all of us.
