I have this beautiful child whom both my husband and I adore, he has been in and out of Dr's offices here in Alaska. Needless to say we just don't have the help that the lower 48 has to offer. He was diagnosed with ADHD several years ago, started on Ritalin...total nightmare after 2 weeks. He became mean and very aggressive. Since then he has been on Strattera which a Dr. put him on and needless to say it was twice the dose for his body weight. That was the next nightmare. Since then he has been seeing another Dr. who put him on what was suppose to be the generic of Adderal XR only to find out last week he was on the generic of Ritalin, which he cannot take...he was taking this for at least 8 months before we realized that the Dr. gave him the wrong one. She also had him taking Risperidone 2 times a day then we went back to 1 time a day. At this point we are trying to wean him off the Risperidone and have incorporated Adderal XR. He has been intolerable, mean, nasty and hurtful. He never wants to do his reading, he is behind and fights me to the bitter end when it comes to homework...it's just this last week has been rock bottom. I don't know if its the medication changes, if I'm missing something but he has had both my husband and I fighting with each other, tonight he brought me to tears from the way he looked at me and talked to me. He just doesn't seem like the sweet boy I once had. Any advise would be great...I know we all have issues; I'm just so limited to my resources here. I feel like my life is one big tornado!
