As some of you may remember, about 8 months ago I put d on 10 mg of celexa to try and help with his disabling anxiety. I had to come to the opinion that most of his issues were related to Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) stuff and thought a low dose of an SSRI was worth a trial. I looked for signs that it might bring underlying BiPolar (BP) to the forefront but didn't see too much of that. He has had such a great year in 3rd grade in terms of coming out of his shell and becoming involved, even doing a book report presentation without panic attacks (this was a huge improvement from 2nd grade). I was feeling like it was helping. Realzing that medications aren't a cure by any means, just feeling grateful for some relief of symptoms. Well fastforward to the past few weeks. I had been noticing his eating was just out of control. I likened it to self medication. Also, his executive functioning skills were no better, possibly worse ? (not sure). Organizing, homework, remembering, all still a problem. The psychiatrist decided to up the Celexa slightly about 5 days ago (this was after the knuckle scraping event) to see if it wouldn't help him manage his symptoms. I am seeing increased ODD, increase emotional fragility, irritation, and certainly no decrease in appetite. I suppose that it being spring doesn't help with this allergic child either. What I'm thinking is: oh my, let's back off on this Celexa. But even more than that, perhaps I should discontinue all together. Except that it truly did help his anxiety so much. Should I give this a few more days or weeks or are these symptoms screaming bipolar or something else? What do you all think?
