My difficult child was recently diagnosed with ADHD, anger and impulse control issues and manic depression. The p/dr wanted to start Vyvanse but we got a tachycardia diagnosis and had to get that testing done. My take is that the anger is out of control and so we needed to deal with that first, so we started Abilify. I thought I saw a change in a few days(we have only been on it for a week) but only last night she went off the deep end because I said no to a weeknight sleepover. She threw stuff at me and started to wreck the house. I left the house and she called with threatening messages, so I had the cops come over to talk to her and make her clean up. I am battle weary and feel like it is all I can do to get up every day. The p/dr has said we should now start Vyvanse as well now that she has been cleared by the cardiologists. We had been going to therapy since January, and just started with the MD. She is 11 and was adopted at 13 days. We have been in therapy since January and initially they said it was adjustment disorder. She has always been explosive and just as quickly, she calms down. Now, she is attacking me physically and verbally. I need to talk to someone, because it feels like it is all about her and as a parent, I am trying so hard to be restrained and calm. Help!!
