so, as I mentioned in my other post, M was taken off Tenex cold turkey last night...so, his last dose was yesterday morning, around 11 am (he took it late). Now, he was put on the Tenex to help control some impulsivity and to keep him from "boiling over" during rages/meltdowns because the psychiatric hospital psychiatrist noted that M looked red faced like he was about to explode when he was raging. So, M doesn't even really present with any "hyperactive" type behaviors typically, though on occasion he can be "high" which I think is somewhat different than hyper, Know what I mean?? If he has any characteristics of ADHD, it's the impuslivity, the distractability, disorganization, careless mistakes on schoolwork, etc. So, I didn't really think the Tenex was doing anything...it seemed worthless...causing more harm than good...but OMG...he's all over the place today! Jumping on furniture, screaming, fake laughter, browsing catalogs circling things he wants us to buy him, jumping off the bed, and he must have shouted "Oh my god" a thousand and one times! Seriously! I'm going to have to tie him down or something! It's been a long time since I've seen him this piped up! Could the Tenex really have been controling this inate behavior? Or is this something else? Is this ADHD hyperactivity? OMG...I had no idea ADHD parents dealt with this level of hyperactivity every day...it's OUT OF CONTROL!
