hey all. Rough night. Need to vent. DS13 went completely 'manic'. After the visit to psychiatric 3 weeks ago, they had blamed that episode on the Prozac. Fine. It was the Prozac. However, a couple days ago, he started with the insomnia again. Absolutely would NOT sleep. Eating EVERYTHING in sight...I mean everything. And I just knew we were in a repeat of what happened 3 weeks ago, but he's not on Prozac now, just his seizure medications. So last night, after he'd been up for 3 straight days, I gave him the melatonin tablet. ER doctor told me to use that last month. Well, he went from 0-60 in the anger mode. He just got this look of rage on his face and snapped. He has his prize fishing poles hanging from the ceiling on display. He spent all of his birthday money on one of them (a 200$ pole). He's always been very proud of his fishing collection. Last night he ripped them all from the ceiling and snapped them in half. I kept trying to stop him because I knew that when he came down from WHATEVER the heck this was, he'd be sooooo sad. Meanwhile, he spitting on me and in a full rage. I was basically using my body as a wall to keep him from leaving the room. I didn't want my other kids to see him like him like this. Needless to say, this morning my whole body aches and I'm now waiting for the doctor office to open up....SERIOUSLY, it can't open soon enough. DS13 is passed out and my guess is he'll sleep the whole day away. Now I'm wondering if it has anything to do with me giving him Vyvanse on Friday? Intitially the neuro prescribed it when DS13 was in 'manic mode' on Prozac. The neuro was in a hurry and when I said DS13 was SUPER AGGITATED and HYPER, he just prescribed him an ADHD medication. What he didn't understand was that was only on Prozac (DS13 has never been hyper). But this is a new neuro. And after his ER trip 3 weeks ago he was removed from the Prozac, BUT he still had the vyvanse script. So anyway, on Friday (going on his inattention at school - could have been petit mals), I decided to go ahead and try the vyvanse. BIG MISTAKE! However, the bottle said it leaves your system in 24 hrs, BUT why is he STILL completely off his rocker??? What is going on??? He swears people are talking to him in his room at night etc...Again, he much bigger than me. Actually, this month, he's gained an INSANE amount of weight! He is usually tall and skinny, seriously, he JIGGLES now! In one month he has eaten sooooooooo much. He never stops. Puberty is one thing, but this is crazy. He was just SHOVING everything he could find into his mouth last night. Hamburgers, Perogies, Popsicles, Chips, Bread....sometimes 2 things at a time. He didn't even care about the taste, just HAD to eat. Has ANYONE here heard of this???? I'm desperate, what is this? Is it from seizures? Part of Aspergers? What is going on?
