I have posted before about my son and PWS I had hoped we would not have our unusual behavioural epsiode again this year. It is a yearly event for the past 3 and a half years and was unmedicated. This time when the episode started just over 10days ago we tried to keep it at bay. it didnt happen and things started to escalate Our day centre has a new psychiatrist and today I had AP. It seems son has bi polar. I was happy that we have this new doctor and a team ready to take on these various cases in the centre as I had a difficulty getting anyone on board to help over the years, In fact difficulty is not the word..the word is failure. Now. doctor has prescribed 2 drugs. Epilum and Seroquel as we are in middle of episode. As PWS has weight issues doctor said Seroquel has less weight problems than say Zyprexa in fact he said weight was not an issue with Seroquel but thats not what I see here or on internet in general. Not quite what I was told. Does he really need two drugs? I thought they were both stabilizers.. I have no knoweldge whatsover on medications as a lot of you do here. Docs are so confusing, Anyone to talk to me about these medications? I am relieved that we might get some relief before Christmas but now I am a bit confused.
