My son spent two weeks, in a psychiatric hospital for a medication wash, came home with the tremors and the psychosomatic symptoms are gone, but he is not stable, they only have him on three medications, Lunesta 6mg, Topamax 125 mg, Respiradal 2mg. He is flying Like a kite high in the March Winds! The psychiatrist and I discussed ECT as well as CBT and DBT, waiting on insurance. I have researched the ECT effects but on the memory side effects he has had 1% PR since he was 7, and Learning Disability (LD) in written expression and Math all along. I know ECT has had a lot of bad PR from the past but our psychiatrist is one of the most renowned in the area for it and I do trust him. We have tried every medication in the book, which I am making a spreadsheet for him so we don't start just throwing medications at him. My main concern is his age (18), he had an EEG done in December should no seizures, and MRI which should no anatomical abnormalities except one which affects his balance. During the medication wash he had a seizure on the 1st they did a CTscan and found nothing. So please give me the GOOD, Bad and the UGLY of your opinions!
