Well, difficult child actually went into the psychiatrist the other night. I promised him that I would not fill the scrip for Zoloft last month, if he would promise to just meet her this time. (He refused to go in last time and sat in the car for an hr and a half). We waited 40 min. for the appointment. and he was very well behaved. We were quite entertained by the families in the waiting area. He went in and sat down ... and then husband called and wanted directions ... the dr said the appointment was only going to be 15 min., for a medication check, so husband decided not to come by. At that point, difficult child was in it for the long haul. (15 whole min.!) The dr. kept it light, asked about school, Christmas, etc. She discussed weaning him off the clonidine and onto the Zoloft, and directed her attention to both of us, giving both of us eye contact. She does not want to do any therapy at this point; wants to leave it to our regular child psychiatric. So she's just the medication coordinator. difficult child agreed to try Zoloft for 2 mo's, and see her again in 1 mo. Wow. He took the Zoloft with-o argument today (we crack them in half to get 25 mg and they're so tiny, it's not a problem). But ... (you knew there was a caveat, right? ) he told me yesterday that he has only been using his Xalatan eyedrops once a wk, instead of every night. Aarrrgggh! I told him in no uncertain terms that he must take them every night to prevent pressure buildup behind his eyes. He doesn't get it. "I'm not blind yet. My eyes are fine." So, now I'm back to monitoring his eye drops. He was acting so mature, I trusted him. Why, why, why, can't I learn? Anyway, this is mostly a good news note. I'll let you know what happens in a few wks with-the Zoloft.
