My son is nine years old and was diagnosed and put on medication for ADHD and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) at five years old. He is hyper, impulsive, aggresive, and obsessed with pokemon and his gameboy. He is also loving, funny, silly and very intellegent (in the gifted class at school). He has all the symptoms of Aspergers, although not yet diagnosed,(socially inappropriate, unusuall speech patterns, difficult time relating to others, obsessed with particular subjects and is not interested in doing anything else). He has had two EEG's which show irregular patters in the emotional part of his brain. His psychiatrist says this can cause his impulsive behavior such as hitting and kicking at school and home and he need an anti seizure medication. His Neurologist says there is nothing wrong with his brain but agrees with the ADHD diagnosis and recommends a neuropsychological exam, which we are on the waiting list for. He recently started Depekote which did not help so switched to Seroquel. We also swiched from Addrall to Vyvanse. School is starting on Monday and he has just had a Akathisia response to his medication (not sure which yet) and can't sleep and lookes like he has Parkinsons Disease. His Psychiatrist says this is his firs patient to have this response, not very reasuring, and we have taken him off all medication and are trying to treat these symptoms with Benztopine. I have been to a ADHD support group near my home and they have lots of good speakers and I can get good info but do not feel I can relate to these people. They talk about getting there 5 year old into college and all I want is for my son to have friends, be happy, fit in, and be able to use his gifts to be succesfull in life. Has anyone had a problem with Akathisia? Abnormal EEG's? Can anyone relate?
