This is all so very difficult. I want to say that my son was diagnosis'd with several things in past several years, ADHD, depression, anxiety, ODD, PTSD, among some others. Lastly, I was told, he does not have ADHD, and he is currently only on zoloft for depression 50mg. I have really been researching the ODD more lately and I think this could be his main issue. I have been trouled all along by his lack of empathy The fact that he never cares how his actions affect others. he will fight or argue with every single thing that is said. Wether it's the sky is blue, or your shirt is black, he will argue that. He is like this to me, his father, and both step parents, and teachers at times. In Feb. he began getting more physical with me and now he' living full time with his father. My main thing I want to know about is the fact that counseling hasn't seemed to help him much in the past 2 years. It used to help, but now it doesn't seem to help at all. Next i would like to know/understand more about the medications that could help him. He's been on zoloft a while now, he's previously been on Abilify, Strattera, and Concerta. The concerta was short time, and didn't work well, the abilify he was on for about 1.5 yrs and the straterra was about a year. I think at first the Abilify made a world of difference, although he was shakey...then he was off it, and he was horrible again. So they restarted it. Then Jan this year he became very very aggressive and started saying he would kill himself, etc...and was in the hospital for 10 days and they recommended he come off. Since then he seems to be okay off that. I just don't know and am looking for any help i can find, I'm at the end of my mind. I just don't know what to do.
