Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Revalp and Neurolith are mood stabilizing medication. I hope that your son had been prescribed these medication by a qualified psychiatrist, after a carrying out a detailed psychological assessment.

If these symptoms which you have described have been of recent onset and his behaviour has suddenly changed drastically, then it is possible that they are indicative of a manic episode (part of a bipolar mood disorder). If this is the case, then I would advise you to follow the advise of the treating psychiatrist and go for regular follow ups.Like any medication, these mood stabilizers can also have some side effects in some people. If you notice any intolerable side effects, then you have to report them promptly.

Wish you all the best.
