I emailed difficult child's dev pediatrician last night to keep her in the loop. She pulled difficult child's records and said that at his last blood draw, which was done in January 2009, his depakote level was 100, which is normal, but that it was a lot higher than the previous draw, which was 60, done in January 2008 (we missed a draw last summer). *** So I went to the pharmacy and pulled his history. His Depakote dose was increased on Feb 11, 2008. My notes say on Feb 13 that his behavior was sliding, by Feb 21, was outright bad, and his first school refusal was April 1. Pretty much 6 weeks later. *** We're sitting right at a year now with this hideous school behavior. *** Is there any possibility that there is a link?
