So today was day 5 of Clonidine. We are seeing some improvment, she seems to be a little more calm at home. Last night was a really good night for her, not alot of the fighting and talking back. Today seems to be a little more rough, both at school and at home. And I totally know that we are going to have bad days, that putting her on medications isn't going to magically fix everything. But today was a pretty rough day at school for her, she ended up tearing her classroom apart, knocking down all the chairs and throwing things all over the place. So it was sugguested that I call her Dr ( her pediatrician) and let her know. She sugguested that we go ahead and get her labs done, and try to the respidol. Her Dr is looking for a nerophyc ( think thats the right term for it) that will take our insurance, because with her being on this now, she needs to see someone else. I am kind of back and forth on this, my step daughter was on Seriquil and was like a drugged up zombie on it, and I know that both of these are in the same drug class. On the other hand, friends of mine that work in the medical field have said, that it's a medication that we should be able to see improvement in a short amount of time, so if she's walking around like a zombie, then it's most likely not the medication that she needs anyways. So there's no harm in trying it for a few days and seeing what happens. I am really torn on this, and feeling like I am being drug into 10 diffrent directions, and I am super stressed out with all this. I'm doing all I can for her right now, and people still feel the need to say I am not doing enough, or doing the right thing.
