Granted I don't really mean that I am going to but living with a child who is NEVER happy is exhausting. I posted this almost exactly a year ago: He has gotten worse. He is never happy and he's usually crying and/or raging over something. He hits me, his siblings, punches walls, and he is defiant ALL of the time. He is such a handsome little guy and we have ALWAYS told him how cute, smart, etc. he is. Now all he ever talks about is how ugly he is, how fat he is (he weighs 42 lbs. and he's 7- NOT fat at all), how everyone hates him, how he wishes he had never been born, how stupid he is, etc. I could maybe understand if he was a moody teenager and always talking that way but at 7 it makes no sense to me. Pediatrician still insists it's ADHD and to just "hang in there" with the Concerta. He's on 18 mg and I notice NO CHANGE whether he takes it or not. We stopped Intuniv because he was falling asleep at school. He takes Clonodine now because without it he'd stay up all night- no kidding. Is there any possibility it's NOT ADHD and the Concerta is just making him worse?
