Hi my understanding family!!! I feel so horrible ugh! Well We started the Tenex on Thursday, .5mg @ 3pm and then she does that in the a.m. as well. I have read up on it and the side affects etc... but want anyone who actually *knows* lol Or your opinions!!! So far she has still been angry and oppositional, it seems worse. Shorter fuse. But I was able to sit with her Friday after school and teach her how to do the latch hook rug project!!! We worked on it for over an hour... and she got it. Friday a.m. just staring out the car window mouth open spacing, on the way to school... Afternoon- did noy want to eat, or listen. "Had" to do a beading project after the latch hook project... I told her not tonight because I had to sit with her to do it and we just worked on one project, let's go upstairs and swing, (we have doorway swings) Aksed me 2 more times to bead... demanded. Then stuck her toungue out at me, "I hate you" I just walked away and said I am going upstairs with N... calmed down came up swang, same thing when it was time to end- lost it ended up passing out on the floor in her room.I put her in bed. Woke next a.m. didn't want to be touched or talked to, just curled up in a ball on the foot of my bed and stared into space, for over a 1/2 hour... then got up was OK. caught her 2x spitting on the floor, she has never done that before, said she had an upset stomach. Her stomach always hurts though, maybe she was burping up something? Up an down all day again... I did projects with them- made a cardboard airplane, baked apples, more latch hook, played in there rooms with them etc... She did not want me to stop, while she seems more able to last longer on a project she is still SO easily frustrated and aggitated and ODD like... it seems worse and then the weird depression. Last night she woke at 12:30 and was WIDE awake, came into my bed, was up for a while and woke N, then they both had to be in my bed!!! JOY. She barely slept, was up at 7 ready to go, but still down. Angry again- had to hottub. I suggested going for a walk after breakfast- "No you said I could hottub, I don't want to go outside" Then she started yelling at me about the snake light burning out... I just let her get in the hottub, she sat in there for 1/2 hour and looked so sad. She just sat there... She doesn't want to go outside. I got her to eat. Now she is upstairs, I put the swings up and put a movie on for them- I don't know what else to do for her. psychiatrist said if it is real bad to stop the Tenex, but if these are side effects and they have a chance of getting better, I want to give it a chance!?!?! I hate this, I hate having her in this state, but I hate giving up on a medication so fast. What if it could help... Is she better or worse? Right now she is worse, will she get better?
