I have a question, well a few actually. I have two boys that are 12 and 9. And a daughter who is 14. My boys have been seeing a counselor for a few months now waiting to be evaluated to be put on medications. My boys are night and day. My 9 year old is ADHD to the max with a bit of ODD in there as well. My 12 year old is being evaluated for bipolar because they said that is a rule out diagnosis they dont want to label him just yet... He has the mood swings, the rages (although not as bad as they have been) and the depression. He is also very immature for his age and about two years behind in school but they say he no longer qualifoes for an IEP because he just has a low IQ!!! (how is this acceptable) sorry your slow so we cant help you anymore) ok im an adult with add/mild adhd so i tend to ramble at times...sorry. ok so they have been seeing the counselors and when they are there the boys are quiet or argue with each other but no real outbursts that they have seen so they placed both my boys on the same exact medication. metadate cd 10 mg. once a day. they have been on it for almost two weeks and my nine year old seems to have lost it at times, more aggressive, doesnt want to eat, getting in fights, talking back, throwing things just straight two year old tantrum behaviors all over again. my 12 year old is alright on it but doesnt sleep at all ( maybe three to four hours of off and on sleeping and really doesnt want to eat. i tell the counselors about there behaviors, they have seen there school reports and know there past but they go by what they see so i am at a loss on what else to do. i know they need medications but they need different medications for different reasons and behaviors. i know im rambling but any advice is appreciated...thanks!
