Hi everyone, I am a mom of 2 wonderful children. My daughter was diagnosed with severe generalized anxiety disorder and separation anxiety disorder shortly after her 6th birthday. She has been hospitalized because the anxiety was so severe and out of control. Currently on Prozac, seeing a play therapist bi-weekly (for 1.5 years), seeing a child psychiatrist for 2 years. We were very fortunate to be able to get a second opinion appointment with a prominent child psychiatrist at our local children's hospital. At our appointment last week, my daughter was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and Sep Anx. Dis. as we already knew but also ADHD, Non verbal learning disorder and dysregulated temperament. The Dr. recommened reading The Explosive Child....I am quire hopeful that it will have a big impact on her explosiveness. daughter's anxiety is not at all under control and she tends to be explosive to some degree most days. Our 2nd opinion Dr. has suggested strattera for daughter. daughter (10) is gifted and shows some symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). We have an appointment with daughter's psychiatric. today. Hopefully we can sort out the medication bit. I haven't heard too much good about Strattera.
