It was another awful night last night, and again just before psychiatrist appointment today. Yesterday also difficult child had the "electircal shocking" feeling from going off Zoloft, he couldn't handle it, things happened at school, then home. Soo, school called Crisis intervention yesterday. Twice in one week. (this was at the second school) If you remember difficult child's last class is at the larger school. psychiatrist said she got a call from crisis. This made difficult child very angry. He doesn't want anyone in his business. She said she wants difficult child to start Abilify 5mg's, and he will begin Lamictal again, as well as the intuniv. He is to cut the zoloft in half for two weeks then discontinue completely. Anyway, things were not good. She asked him and me to consider 1/2 day of school and 1/2 day at day treatment. I was not very accepting of this. She asked difficult child to step out. Then she told me if difficult child hurts himself it is on MY SHOULDERS, MY responsibility. I was quite upset at that. I went to pay and didn't have any checks, had to go back. When I went back I was talking to psychiatrist about all the medications difficult child takes and if they can go with each other. She wasn't very big on vyvanse. I told her that he only takes it at the end of the quarter. The past two weeks. She said she thinks THAT is what has caused the past two weeks to be awful. Not to take it. I didn't think difficult child would care. He says every day that he takes it how it makes him feel withdrawn and tired. But when I told him what she said, he said he wanted to take it. I have read the threads on abilify, and read all the side effects. I am afraid of that. Knowing difficult child he will have a bad reaction. He seems to have bad reaction to every medication he has tried, except lamictal. sigh. do we start them both tonight? start lamictal first since we have been on that before. I am just worried and scared. It has been a horrible week. difficult child's girlfriend is taking him to the winter formal at her school tomorrow. He usually doesn't want to go anywhere. should we start the medicine tonight, tomorrow...should we wait..I just don't know what to do.
