Hello all! My daughter was diagnosed ADHD in August. Once on Metadate CD, she started having increasing agression. We stopped the medications, but she continued the defiance/agression. Psychiatrist started her on Adderall XR. She has been on for about 6 weeks now. The medications work OK to help during the day (I think she might need a higher dose, but psychiatric says it will make her more emotional). Her rages/defiance continue. He has now started her on Chlonodine. Only 1/4th of the pill per day (around 3 pm). He wants to start really low, and then add more at next visit. He said we probably wouldn't notice anything for at least 2 weeks. She started taking them on Halloween. We have seen no improvement (but it hasn't been 2 weeks yet). Her defiance/rages contine and can be over anything. Life is sooooo difficult. Saying no to "can I have chips?" results in straight up chaos! I'm wondering if it is more than ADHD -she has had those symptoms forever, but the defiance/raging only since August. Her psychiatrist thinks it is only ADHD at this point. Birth mom was psychizophrenic, bipolar. I'm wondering if my daughter is also bipolar. Will the chlonodine help with the defiance/rages? If so, how long until I get some relief?
