Hi all, we visited the psychiatrist today. We are trying Imiprimene, which I'd wanted b4 we wasted our time (and difficult child's health) on Prozac and Zoloft, but you know how you have to jump through hoops. I hope this works. We have to do a blood draw in 6 wks. It also helps with-bedwetting and is supposedly sedating, but calming. I hope so. Then we could get rid of the Clonidine and the Adderal and occasional Desmopressin. Keep your fingers crossed! I was out of town for more than a wk, with-my Dad, who has Alzheimer's. He is SO easy to be with! Despite his poor memory and occasional bouts of fantasy (he thinks he's been to other planets, and the moon), he's still polite, opens doors, wears a sportjacket everywhere and minds his manners. And he misses me when I leave. I miss him, too. We always wanted our dad to ourselves ... too bad he's got Alzheimer's. When I picked up difficult child at school today, we got along well for about 1/2 hr. As we got closer to the house, he got more agitated about wanting to use his PS2, and I reminded him that I always look through his homework notebook and that he has chores. Grrrr. I did not argue, but I was firm. He only did one of his chores and then I noticed that not only had he wet his bed, but he'd wet and ruined a very expensive down comforter that I never allowed in his room. He said he didn't know it was there. Yeah, right. I lost it, in a controlled manner, and said that if the smell and stain weren't out in 24 hrs, he owed me $110. husband hates for anyone to make waves, so he dragged it out onto the cold porch and helped difficult child spray Chlorox on it. difficult child has gone through 4 mattresses in as many yrs, despite the new diet (he traded cheese and wheat crackers with-a friend last wk) and knows it makes him wet the bed. He's got to show some responsibility. So, how long b4 I see the effects--or side effects--of Imiprimene?
