Hi, to all you lovely and wonderfull parents! Things are looking so great at the moment for my little darling! He has been on the new medications for 8 days now, Cyprelex (anti depressant). He is so much more cooperative, smiling, willing to help, ect. He still gets his moments of strong will and even little verbal abuse, but then says he is sorry and 'just joking'. Me and his dad is trying to be nicer and also trying to handle difficult situations better. We are also working together with teacher to try and make things easier for him at school. This morning his teacher send me a SMS to say that she is so happy with him, he started making much more eye contact, is laughing (first time this year in the class), he even came to talk a little bit with her and this morning he VOLENTEERED to help her with some stuff! He didn't show any ODD behavior the last 2 weeks and had no melt downs for almost 2 weeks. Am I being to quick in my excitement regarding his behavior? Could this mean that he mayby was just depressed and anxious and didn't have all the possible Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) or bad ODD? Or is this just part of it all....being 'good' for weeks/ months and then suddenly begin with meltdowns and bad ODD behaviour again?
