A quick background. My son (12) was diagnosed with ADHD 5 yrs ago and for the most part has done well on medications (Daytrana). He has always shown signs of ODD and this year was suspended numerous times. Those issues aside because although troublesome this is not my main concern at the moment. My son has developed a severe anxiety disorder which has caused him to be irrational and will no longer eat (unless Mom prepares it or someone familure) for fear of having an allergic reaction. This caused him to loose too much weight and now has stressed his heart. My son had a complete breakdown last week and asked for help. I took him to the ER and now he is in an outpatient program. He is on 3 medications at the moment i.e. Daytrana, Klonopin and Zoloft. Well now they want to add medications for ODD. I do NOT want to put him on any more medications just yet. He has only been at the facility for four days. I am also very upset with them because they keep telling my son he is not admitting why he is in there. Well he was referred to them for anxiety, not ODD. Sure I know he has issues with ODD but my main concern is his anxiety seeing as this is what is causing him to be physically ill and the next step will be a feeding tube. I am more then willing to address the ODD but I think addressing his anxiety is the more serious concern. Also why so many drugs? Maybe some of you can help me with this issue. I want my son to get better, to be able to function again in society. He is actually showing signs of re-directing his behavior with just some behavior modification techniques they are teaching him. We haven't ever done behavior modification before so I'm more enclined to see how this works with just the medications he is on before adding to them. Maybe I'm afraid of the medications they are suggesting. These same drugs made my niece worse as well his Dad. As you can see mental illness runs in the family. My sister is also bi-polar. I just feel so alone in this process. My husband is being very supportive, but my son's Dad just doesn't seem to be on board with all of this. I'm just trying to do what is best for my son. Right now he is ****** at me because he doesn't feel he needs to be in this program but he was the one that asked for help. I know this is the right place for him but it is still so hard to watch him suffer. I'm plum wore out.
