Hi, I am new at this so hopefully this goes ok. I have a 11 year old son who I love to pieces, but I feel like I am at my wits end with him right now. He was diagnosed as Mood Sympton Disorder not otherwise specified and ADHD. He is on Abilify as well. He has been on his medicine since December of 08. We have taken him to a Neuro psychiatric and still we just have basically a generic diagnosis with the Mood Sympton Disorder and the doctor keeps asking me is there any bi-polar in the family which I really dont know if there is or not. We have problems at school with learning issues and the school is starting to help us with that. He lies about homework and we have to have the teacher sign his planner and they are not following through with that on their end either. When he first started taking the Abilify we thought we were seeing some changes but then he would go back to behavior of meltdowns/outburts which consist of cursing, hitting, spitting, lieing, out right being defiant, breaking his toys, just disrupting out entire home basically. The doctor has changed his dosage 3 times now and we are right back where we were. Last night it turned into a screaming fit throwing match just because we wanted him to take a shower, somthing simple should have been easy but turned into my husband and I feeling defeated and worthless and it lasted for probably 1 hours. We feel so helpless and like we are not getting the help that we need. Does anybody else have any advice or do you think we should try a different doctor or is the normal? Which I really hope this is NOT normal behavior. We have a 9 year old daughter and it kills me to see her go through this with us. Usually she shuts herself in her room till the blow up is over. I keep saying he is bi-polar or something more than Mood Sympton Disorder not otherwise specified HELP!!!!
