My son who is 10 and has been hospitalized twice in the last 6 months for mental health reasons. The Dr.s diagnosed his with ADHD, ODD, SI. He is physically violent when he gets angry. He sometimes doesn't even remember going into these "rages" that sometimes will go on for hours. After his second hospitalization I had asked the dr. about whether it was possible for my son to have bipolar in which he told me not at this age. He is currently failing school because he refuses to do any of the work and his outburst are getting worse since being released on Tenex and Risperdal. Now his current psychiatric is saying its bipolar, that most dr.s don't want to use that label. I was just wondering if someone else has had the same type of issue with the dr.s or should I get a third opinion? He is in the process of being sent to a school for behavioral children and has an IEP after fighting tooth and nail for it and I just want whats best for him. We are doing outside therapy every two weeks along with four hours on in home therapy every week.
